PedPro is an animal breeding and pedigree software product that prints your pedigrees and stores your breeding records, for Windows-based computers1.
PedPro can be downloaded from this site. Initially it operates as a 30 day trial version. After the trial period purchase a registration code for the full, unrestricted, version.
- Easy To Use - just click in the on-screen pedigree to fill in the animal details and ancestors, then click Print or PDF to export as PDF.
- Stores Your Data - PedPro remembers the details of animals previously entered and saved in the data file. E.g. when creating a new pedigree if the Sire/Dam is one you've added before you can just select it from a list and the software automatically pulls in their ancestors as far back as you've previously entered.
- Transfer From Breeders Assistant or Pedigree Assistant - if you've previously stored your pedigrees in either of these other products, transfer them easily into PedPro without having to use CSV/text import/export. Not all data is transferred, please check suitability first.
- Customize Pedigrees - adjust the pedigree layout by changing fonts & colors, borders, number of ancestor generations (3-6). Optionally include a logo, photo or signature area. Resize the boxes. Choose which data fields are to be included in the main pedigree details and each ancestor generation, separately.
