Farmware Upgrade (Hillwood Release)

October 10, 2016 in Farmware Update

Release notes from the latest Farmware upgrade, available to all users now:


New Features

  • A new Livestock Activity Search page that allows for much better control of filtering Livestock Activities
  • A new Storage Activity named ‘Bulk Stocktake’ allows for the rapid update of a number of inventory levels all at once.
  • It’s now possible to view the chemical and commodity inventory levels for any day in the past.
  • The Crop Activity Summary and Stocking Rate Report can now be exported to CSV.


  • Navigation has been cleaned up so that the Back button behaviour should be more predictable.
  • Notes now correctly display line-breaks on summary pages.
  • An ‘Add Activity’ button is now available at the top of each activity summary screen when the user is not in setup mode.
  • If a new user tries to add a mob, a crop or a storage location without there being any paddocks then they are redirected to the add paddock screen.
  • Diary entries for Paddock Activities are now included in the Activity Summary.
  • The Livestock Divide activity now writes the names of the paddocks the mobs have been divided into in the notes.

Bug Fixes

  • When there are more than 100 entries on an activity summary screen the Load Next button used to ignore the current filter. This has been fixed.
  • Decimal points in the stocking rate report are now pruned where appropriate.
  • Livestock Activities that include a Head Count and the ability to update the size of the mob now cannot be saved without allocating a sex to the stock that is lost/gained.
  • Removal of a disused unit type ‘Ares’.
  • It’s now possible to rename a mob without also providing a mob division name.
  • It’s no longer possible to forward date agist activities or set them to ‘Planned’.
  • A fix for a rare case in Livestock Combine
  • The chemical selection list on the Paddock Activity Add screen now correctly shows only paddock related chemicals and not livestock ones.
  • DSE/Ha label added to Stocking Rate Graph
