EC 12 - ABORT Event

The ABORT event declares that an animal's pregnancy has aborted. The app expects you to add pregnant females to this event, so it will not allow you to add an animal that is not in the PREGClosedPregnant reproduction status.

See the topics below for help with this event:

Define Details for this Event

The details listed below are typical for an Abort event; however, be aware that the details you see in the mobile app may vary based on the DC305ClosedDairyComp305 - VAS Dairy Management Software command that created the event. If any fields other than the animal IDClosedIdentifier are required to process an animal, they are marked with an * (asterisk) symbol in the app.

What Happens When I Process Changes for this Event?

When you tap the Process My Changes button in the mobile app, it sends your updates forward to DairyComp 305 (WiFi or data connection required).

When DairyComp 305 receives the updates from the Platform, it processes the following changes for each animal in the event:

  • Records an Abort event and sets the EDAYClosedEvent day to the date the event was completed in the mobile app.
  • Changes the breeding result of the last BRED event to A (Abort) and sets the CDAT and SIRCClosedSire of conception to 0 (zero).
  • Updates the RPROClosedReproductive code code to the one selected in the mobile app.
  • Leaves the lactation cycle unchanged OR starts a new lactation cycle, depending on which option was selected in the mobile app.
  • Sets the ABDAT and the ADDATClosedAbortion Determination Date.

    While the ABDAT (Abortion Date) is usually set to a time in the past, the ADDAT (Abortion Determination Date) records when the ABORT event was executed. For example, if today is 11/19/2019 and you run a vet list to check a cow for DRY confirmation, but you see that she aborted some time in the past and is now OPEN, you might estimate that the ABORT event occurred 90 days ago. In this case, the ABDAT (Abort Date) is the ADDAT (11/19/2019) – 90.

See Processing Your Changes for more information on how the mobile app, the Platform, and DairyComp 305 work together to process your changes.
