Managing mob sexes

November 9, 2015 in Farmware Tip

Question: Say I had a mob of animals that I had recorded as mixed sex, but then I decided I wanted to record them as male and female instead. How could I do this?

Answer: Using the Livestock 'Divide' activity, select your mob containing mixed sex animals and divide into 2 (or more) divisions, reallocating sexes for each division. For example, you may wish to put females in one division and males in another.

(If you wish you can also recombine them into a single mob later on using the 'Combine' activity, and the breakdown of sexes you had assigned will be preserved.)
