Offspring Identifiers
You can record a visual identifier for each offspring through manual entry or by scanning a tag with a Bluetooth enabled stick reader or similar device. In order to record and EID for the animal a tag must be scanned.

To scan a tag, tap the Select input method field and then select Scan tag from the menu.

If you need to connect your Bluetooth stick reader or similar, tap the Connect hardware button on the next page. Read more about hardware connections.

Scan a tag to select that tag's EID, and enter the Visual identifier manually.

Advanced Form Fields

If you have recorded the sire details as part of a joining record, artificial insemination record or scanning record we will present you with the list of possible sires. Options are sorted by how close they are to the estimated fetal age, and if it is within 2 weeks the closest sire is selected.

Additional costs can be entered by selecting Add additional cost at the bottom of the form. This can be used for labour and other additional costs. You may record as many of these costs as required.
