Moving livestock to another paddock is simple! On the Mobile App it is easy as hold, drag and drop.
Before you start, don’t forget that livestock will merge together if all of the following characteristics are the same:
- Age Class
- Tag Colour
- Management Tags
To ensure livestock groups don’t merge, make sure one of these characteristics is different or apply a Management Tag. To learn more, check out our guide on Management Tags.
If a merge is possible you will be able to select the livestock that you wish to merge in the target paddock.
Learn more by checking out our Merge Livestock article.
Livestock joining will be initiated by moving Bulls or Rams into the same paddock as Cows or Ewes. To end joining, move the Bulls or Rams to another paddock. Be sure to check out our article on Joining for more information.
Open and close gates at the time of a move. When a paddock is connected to other paddocks via gates, the from and to paddock boxes will display the number of connected paddocks and the option to update your gates.
Tap Update gates to open a list of connected paddocks
Check a paddock to open the gate or uncheck a paddock to close it.
Note: When opening a gate to a paddock connected to further paddocks by gates, you will also have the opportunity to open or close these.
Press Select to save your changes.
Backdating a Move, Split or Draft
A move can be backdated to the most recent record applied to the livestock. For example, if you are moving livestock which was moved 5 days ago, the earliest the move can be backdated is 5 days ago.

Click on the livestock that you wish to move. This will bring you to the Paddock Summary.
Press View Details next to the livestock you wish to move. Then, press Edit Details and select the paddock that you wish to move the livestock into from the Paddock box.
