It is very important for the Autumn and Spring Inventory that you correctly Fate off females using the correct Disposal Codes supplied on the bottom of your Female Inventory List and the correct Disposal dates. Using the correct Disposal Codes ensures that females are being fated off based on an abnormality, old age etc. and supplying the correct Disposal dates can affect calf registrations, Breedplan and so on.
Below is an example of how a Female Inventory List should be completed based on various scenarios that may occur within your herd.
MSOB1 – fated off using the Disposal code B (sold surplus breeding female), disposal date noted.
MSOB12 – has been downgraded to a Recipient, disposal date (or effective date) noted.
MSOB14 – is expected to calve in Spring not Autumn, S is put in the New Season column (or vice-versa).
MSOF223 – is being downgraded from a HBR to an APR, a tick in the APR column and the disposal date (or effective date) noted.
MSOA19 – is being reinstated and put back on the inventory list for Autumn, code 6 (restore to active) and a disposal date (or effective date) noted.
Note: You can move animals within an inventory year, however you cannot move it from one year to the next.
