** Please Note: Uploading Animals in this way will not move newly purchased animals onto your regulatory page for an "On Movement"*

Once you have logged in to your account, you are able to upload animals via a spreadsheet on the web app. This is particularly useful for adding historical animal data against animals that have already left your farm.

Once you have uploaded animals (you can mark them as off farm if necessary) and you can then upload the relevant activity data such as weight, med and feed against them.

This data will populate your reports and allow you to view aggregated data for animals that have already left your farm as well as current on farm animals.
