Transfer/Foster animals to another cow

Search Discussion Boards
When you go to the Wean box (for the dead cow), select "Transfer/Foster" from the Options menu. This will let you transfer the calf to the other cow so that you can record the weaning with the other cow. You can select "Show non-living" from the "Query" menu to get the dead cow to show up in the animal ID drop-down list. This will allow you to go into the weaning box for the dead cow.

With regards to non-unique animal IDs, this is pretty important to how the program works. If it allowed the same ID twice, all the records could get mixed up. However, when you record a livestock death, the animal ID should be changed so that it has the date of death tacked onto the end of the ID. This is designed so that you can re-use these IDs. Let me know if this makes sense.

I hope this helps!
