AgriWebb allows you to import CSV files of all the individual animals on your farm. The best way to import these animals is to export a separate CSV for each breed to make it easier when importing. Each CSV can only contain either Sheep or Cattle.
If you don’t have an exported CSV you can download the AgriWebb animal import template file to get started. Fill in the template with your animals and then export the document as a CSV file to import into AgriWebb.
1. Open the importer and upload your CSV
Select the Livestock section from the navigation panel on the left
Click on the Individuals tab at the top of the page to view your list of individual animals.
Select Add Animal, and select Import.
Choose what type of animal you would like to import. Then upload a CSV file from your computer.
2. Identify CSV columns
We will attempt to identify all the columns in your CSV document and match them with AgriWebb animal properties. Incase there are columns we don’t recognise, you can review the mapping and make changes.
You can also use this screen to specify manual values that apply to *all* the imported animals. This can be useful for adding extra information to your CSV data.
The required fields are Breed, Birthdate, Sex and Weaned.
You also have the option to import other fields such as VID, EID, Date on Farm, Fertility Status, Tag Colour, Tattoo, Brand, Weight, Last Weighed Date, Dam and Sire EID's and VID's. Note: These fields can be imported directly from the CSV or can be manually entered.
3. Fix unknown or empty values
If we are unable to identify any values in your CSV you will be able to provide a valid value. This could be due to missing or invalid data in your CSV. In the below example Breed and Last Weighed Date were empty.
4. Review conflicts with existing animals
You will not be able to import any animals in your CSV that have an EID or VID that matches an animal already in AgriWebb. You will be able to review these animals before proceeding with the Import. If the conflict is a mistake you can update your CSV and import it again.
5. Resolve conflicts within your CSV
As you cannot have duplicate EIDs / VIDs in AgriWebb, we will identify any conflicts in your CSV and you can choose which animals you want to import. If you identify any of the conflicts as errors in your data, you should update your CSV and upload it again.
6. Preview and complete
You will be shown a small preview of your data to be imported. If all the columns look correct you can select “import” to create your animals. You will be returned to the animal list to view your animals
