Sheep Ireland listened to the feedback from breeders over the last number of years and are proud to introduce our new inspections screen. On this screen breeders can record their health data as well as their weights. Any incidences of lameness, mastitis (females only), prolapse (female only) or laryngeal chrondritis can be recorded as well as body condition and dag scores. The management group of the animal (ie outdoor vs indoor) can also be recorded. After logging in, breeders should go to the management tab, click on inspections and a data of inspection must be entered. Once the date is entered, there is a choice to select only lambs, ewes and rams and the animal’s ID can be typed into the search bar. The details of the animals can then be entered here, once satisfied that all data on all inspected animals has been entered, the preview animals tab at the top right of the screen needs to be selected and all details of animals need to be confirmed before being moved out of the flock.
Take a look at the video below on how to use the Inspections screen
