Recording your Mating

Recording your mating is a very important start to retrieving the correct parentage status of your animals. Determining the parentage of animals is the basis of all genetic evaluations to ensure they are as accurate as possible. When a mating is recorded on the database, the sire is pre-populated when entering the lambing event at lambing time. There is also a mating report complied which is of huge benefit to a farmer when identifying what ewe has been mated with each sire.

Mating can be recorded via the website (click here to find out how to record mating on the website) or via the LambPlus App.
