If you don't know how to export a file from FarmPlan please click the button below for a step by step guide on how to export and save a file to your computer from FarmPlan
The standard file export from FarmPlan is an .xls file, once you have exported this from FarmPlan it is important that you don't make any amendments to the file before you upload to Breedr. This is because we have built the upload tool within Breedr to work as conveniently as possible, so it does not require any format changes.
To upload your FarmPlan .xls file, make sure you are logged into the Breedr web app
Once logged in, head to your My Livestock page by clicking the animal icon and then click the Import Weight Data button at the top right of the screen
You will then be given the option to upload weight data from Tru-Test or FarmPlan - click the FarmPlan logo to select FarmPlan, this will then highlight blue and you can click the yellow Choose file button to then select the FarmPlan .xls file of your choice.
Once you have selected your file, you will see the file name appear and you can either select Import to go ahead or Cancel, if you would like to select a different file.
Once your file has successfully imported a green Complete banner will appear on screen with confirmation on how many weights have successfully uploaded.
By clicking Show import data on the right of the banner you will then also be able to preview the uploaded data in a window below. This will also confirm any weight data that did not upload.
It's important to note that only weights associated with animals on your farm within Breedr will upload successfully. If there is weigh data for animals with passport data not within Breedr, this weigh data will not upload.
If you would like to upload historical weigh data for animals that are no longer on your farm please see this guide on how to Upload Animals first and then you can upload the corresponding weigh data against them.
