Get the Edge! | Management Tools for Poultry Farmers

  • EGGonomics is a great tool for our business. We draw information and data from the program that helps us to make critical decisions in our business. EGGonomics has become part of business and not just a tool. The team at EGGonomics are always available to assist our team when required. The program is user friendly and the upgrades on the program are always welcomed.

  • Avichick and its subsidiaries have been using both the EGGonomics and FLAWleSS (the commercial layer pullet rearing) programs for a number of years. Everyone in the company that either does data inputs or uses the reports in their day to day management is constantly commenting on the “friendliness” and usefulness of the programs. The new vaccination module in FLAWleSS is a very welcome addition taking it to the next level as a day to day management tool. I would recommend using these programs to each and every producer who enjoys the challenge to achieve the maximum production results out of their layer flocks.

  • Several customers of De Heus are using the Leading Edge pullet and layer software. With their permission, De Heus can access their records via the cloud to get the actual data from the farm. We can quickly help them to make the right decisions for their farm based on this information.


    We have found the software to be an ideal management tool that is very user-friendly. The output, as tables or graphs, makes it very easy to identify any problems in a flock and then to provide solutions to help remedy these problems. A big advantage for De Heus is that all the data is presented in the same format and does not need to be sorted or tidied before we can evaluate it.


    I enjoy working with the Leading Edge Team as they are always cheerful and willing to help. They are continually working to improve the program, or adding more useful features. De Heus encourages all our customers to use this software as it is a very useful management tool.

  • A critical part of our job is the evaluation of accurate records from our poultry farm clients. This helps us in assisting our clients to make important decisions which invariably have financial implications for their business.


    The software from Leading Edge Poultry Software has proved invaluable to us in providing an extra string to the bow in our service. We are able to access the records on the cloud at any time and from any location. This enables us to make rapid evaluations of records and therefore quick decisions are made, saving valuable time for the business.

  • The Leading Edge software is a powerful management tool and is a must for all commercial poultry producers. Leading Edge is simple and easy to use. It allows fast efficient data capture and extrapolates results instantly.  It has provided Avonlea Farm with a clear and accurate picture of current performance and enabled us to improve in all aspects of our business.


    Shelley and her team provide great support and I would recommend Leading Edge to all poultry farmers.

  • Record keeping is a major part of poultry farming. The Leading Edge software has made it simple to see exactly what is happening all over the farm. It is extremely accurate and simple to operate. Attention to detail has been made a lot easier.

    Great work from Shelley and the Leading Edge team.

  • We use both the FLAWleSS and EGGonomics programmes. Both are extremely user friendly and flexible. The wide range of reports and charts that are available makes monitoring very easy during the good times, and allows for more in depth analysis during problem times or with problem flocks. The reports include, daily, weekly and monthly reports, as well as more specific feed or shed reports. It is easy to access historical data, as the flocks are archived at depopulation and the information remains accessible. The ability to export the reports to excel for further manipulation is an advantage, as is the ease of printing and emailing the charts or reports.

  • The KZN Poultry Institute has been working with the Leading Edge pullet and layer software for some years now. The software is intuitive and easy to operate. The output provides a rapid and visual means of monitoring flock performance and identifying any flock problems. The facilities for trending production and economic parameters over time and between flocks are outstanding and provide meaningful management and training tools. The monthly benchmarking reports provide a useful perspective on the wider industry.


    Shelley and her team always offer prompt, cheerful and insightful service with continual emphasis on customer support and software improvement. They take realistic suggestions on board and incorporate them into program updates. We, on our small farm, find it such a useful management and training tool that I don’t know how any commercial operation manages without Leading Edge.

  • We have been using your layer program for numerous years at Galovos in Mozambique and also Heidel Eggs in White River.  Your ability to understand our needs and the ability to adjust the program to our specific needs has made the management of information relating to our layer flock that much easier.  The availability of you and your staff members, in reaction to our queries and problems, is definitely commendable and makes our farm administration that much easier.  The data capture screens are very easy to read and self-explanatory, leading to easy data capture.  The array of reports available has also meant that we can extract much more meaningful information with which to optimise our laying flock performance. The fact that data can be looked at on a daily, weekly and monthly basis ensures that we can monitor every aspect of the laying operation.


    We eagerly promote your organisation amongst other poultry producers and wish that your organisation goes from strength to strength.

  • The Production Records software is a must-have if you are a poultry farmer. Record keeping is an essential element in farming and the software covers everything, it really is an all-in-one. There is nothing else on the market that offers the same functionality. Shelley has done a great job!

  • Leading Edge’s commercial layer program is much more user-friendly than the old software I was using. The inputs are easy, the graphs are fantastic and the reporting is excellent. I love the fact that I can export data to Excel for further manipulation.

  • After many years of struggling to maintain a meaningful set of records through a complexity of home derived spread sheets, Leading Edge software, through its simplicity, thorough reporting and attention to detail has improved our ability to manage our laying flock substantially.

  • The Leading Edge software program has given us a very easy and effective way of keeping our finger on the pulse at all times. It is extremely user friendly and allows for any problems to be picked up and dealt with with minimal loss or damage. The regular updates keep us on top of our game and help us to run an effective, productive egg laying business. It allows me to give comprehensive information when requested by poultry experts and they are able to troubleshoot our problems with ease and efficacy.

  • I can honestly say that Leading Edge has helped me from going over the edge when it comes to reports for meetings regarding egg productions on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. It is very easy to use and definitely user friendly. You have all the needed information at your fingertips, reports or graphs. Try it, you will not regret it.
