This guide demonstrates a workaround to help you track agisted livestock using the current AgriWebb function.
Recording your livestock on Agistment
Create a paddock to represent the property you are agisting on the Mobile App or the Web App. Check out our Drawing a Paddock guide to learn how to create a paddock.
You may even create multiple agistment paddocks to represent different agistment contracts or to prevent livestock that were agisted separately from merging.
In order to not affect your farm's stocking rate, set the arable area of the agistment paddocks to 0 hectares/acres.
When agistment starts, move the livestock into the agistment paddock. You can track the agistment costs by using a Livestock treatment. Create a separate Agistment Treatment for each property you're agisting to or for each Agistment contract.
Check out our guide on Inventory Management to learn more.
Set the cost of the treatment to zero. When applying the Treatment to the agisted livestock, record the total agistment cost in the Labour Unit Cost field.
Treatment Records Report
The Livestock Treatment Records Report in the AgriWebb Web App is used to track production costs for your agisted livestock.
Filter the report to show you your total costs of agistment. To learn more about customising your reports, check out our article on Reporting.
Recording livestock agisted on your property
Record the livestock received on Agistment whilst accurately recording income and stocking rate on your farm with the following work around.
Add the agisted livestock and set the origin to Purchased. Set the purchase price to $0 and add lease details under Vendor Name. Add a Management Tag called Agistment so that the livestock can be filtered out in your reports. If you want to maintain an accurate stocking rate across your operation, input the agisted stock's DSE/LSU/AE.
When the Agistment contract ends, simply create a Sale Record and set the price received as the income that you received for the contract. Simply filter your Sale Records report by Management Tag to view your total incomes from Agistment.
