Why can’t I edit livestock from bred to purchased?

If livestock’s origin is recorded as bred when it is added, you will not be able to edit and change the origin to purchased. Ensure that when you are setting up livestock you are recording the correct origin information. 

If you would like to change livestock's origin from bred to purchased, please contact our Farm Success Team who would be happy to help you out!

You're able to change your mobs origin from purchased to bred via the Web App. Simple select the mob > Edit Details > Origin. From here to you can enter in the purchase details. 

What is the best way to add Lambs and Calves into AgriWebb?

Creating a Marking record is the best way to create new lamb or calf groups. Marking will link maternal livestock to their offspring and the new groups can then be split based on their sex.

The marking percentage automatically populates in the Fertility Report, to give you a comprehensive look into your natural increase.

Check out our full guide to Marking to learn more, or read more about our sheep management software.

How do I scan and then split my livestock based upon pregnancy results?

Input Scan Results 

By applying a scanning record to the whole group you can accurately record the results, including their scanning percentage and then draft based upon their pregnancy status. Be sure to check out our full guide to creating a Scanning Record to read more.

Draft according to Results

 Following this, you can Draft and Split the livestock and add a Management Tag according to their pregnancy status to prevent them from merging with similar groups.

Add a Management Tag 

Simple conduct an Add Tag record on the livestock to assign them a Management Tag according to their pregnancy status to quickly identify them and prevent them merging with other similar groups.

Type in Drys, Singles, Twins or Triplets into the Management Tag field and click Save.

If I archive an item from my inventory list, will it delete the associated treatment records?

Don’t worry, archiving an inventory item doesn’t delete the records you created from the inventory item. Those records are safely stored in your Treatment Reports, Livestock and Paddock histories and won’t affect your record-keeping for audit compliance. Inventory items can only be archived in our Mobile App, to learn more be sure to check out our full guide to Inventory Management.
