In the Stock Activity tab of the Actuals screen
- Click + Non-Financial Event
For each event you should record the following:
- the date of the event.
- the type of event.
- the stock class.
- a description (optional).
- the quantity of livestock involved.
When entering a Birth event you'll notice an extra field called Parent Ext Code. This field lets you allocate the event to a breeding stock class such as MA ewes, 2th ewes or ewe hoggets so that breeding percentages can be calculated.
Click Save when you have completed the event.
Once the event has been recorded, It will be listed in the Stock activity tab of the Actuals screen, along with your other livestock transactions.
TIP: It is important to remember to enter in any birth events prior to any other events for that stock class. For example, you have 1000 lambs born and sell 500 of them. You will need to enter the birth event before you can sell those stock. This keeps the Livestock Reconciliation tidy as you progress through the year, and easier to move into the next financial year.
