Help - My Main Animals - Production & Products


The "Production" screen is for viewing and recording the production of an animal's products including milk, eggs, meat, etc... Production is recorded by animal type or it can be for an individual animal. This is not where production income is recorded. Production income is recorded in the "Financial - Income" entry area. Normally, this will be used to record production counts of eggs, dairy, meat and other animal products. Entries can be recorded daily, but it is much easier to record the total usage weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. The recommended method is to record usage in the system on the 15th and last day of each month by totaling the manual production charts for eggs, milk, etc...

Select & Download the free custom feed usage, production and other forms for use in the barn, coop, or pen.
