Merging mobs means combining multiple mobs of the same type into a single mob. Merging is not automatic because when mobs are merged together, the records of both mobs are also combined.
Merging multiple mobs into one is possible when the Age Class, Breed, Tag Colour, and Management Tags are the same.
There are 2 ways to merge mobs on the mobile app. Selecting the Merge button under Mob Actions or a Merge on movement.
Merge Mob from Mob Actions
Tap the mob you are wishing to merge and select View Details
In the Mob Details page, select More from the bottom right-hand corner
Select Merge from the Mob Actions
You will now see a list of all mobs across the farm available to merge in with.
Note: If you don’t see the merge option it means there are no available mobs to merge in with.
Merge on movement
Merge on Move All
When the target paddock has mobs with the same characteristics mentioned above then you will have the option to merge these together.
Mobs available for merging show up under the heading like in the image below.
Select the mobs that you wish to merge. Press Save to finalise your merges.
Merge on Draft & Split
You’ll be able to merge mobs from a draft/split as well. If you tick the circle next to Merge mobs in target paddock, you’ll see the regular Move button replaced with Merge.
Tap Next to see a summary of which mobs will be merged, and to specify the record date.
Editing mobs to enable merge
If you are having trouble merging your mobs check that all these characteristics are the same:
- Age Class
- Tag Colour
- Management Tags
If these values do not match but you wish to merge mobs in order to manage them as one mob, then you can edit one of the mobs to match:
- Select the mob you wish to edit
- Select View Mob Details
- Select More from the bottom right-hand corner
- Select Edit from the Mob Actions
- In the Details page scroll down and change any of the above characteristics to match the other mob.
- Select Save.
