The details listed below are typical for a Sold event; however, be aware that the details you see in the mobile app may vary based on the DairyComp command that created the event. Any required fields are marked with the * (asterisk) symbol in the app.
The IDAnimal identifier of the animal that has been sold. This field is automatically populated with the animal ID when you add a animal to the list. You can tap its ID number to view its CowCard.
Because the app expects you to add animals that are eligible to sell, it will display a warning before allowing you to add an animal if its meat withdrawal date has not expired. The app will not restrict you from adding these animals; it simply warns you of their status so that you can determine whether to continue.
The technician who added the animal to this event. Tap this field to select from a list of available technicians.
The names and numbers in the TechnicianTech is short for Technician. list come from the Technician Table in DairyComp. This table is optional in DairyComp, so if you do not see any names here in the mobile app, you need to make sure that a DairyComp admin has created this table so that it can synchronize to the Platform. Once it has been created, a code number and name can be assigned to each technician, and members with DairyComp admin permissions can add and remove technician names as necessary. The mobile app requires an active data or WiFi connection to synchronize updates.
The disposal code defines the reason for selling the animal. Tap this field to choose from a list of options.
The options in the Disposal Codes list come from the CARCondition Affecting Record. CAR codes are used by DHIA to determine the status of a cow’s record. This includes reason for disposal as well as reasons for the record not to be used for sire proofs. The DairyComp CAR table includes the 9 standard DHIA codes and allows users to add 7 additional codes to the table. table in DairyComp. If you require changes in the Platform mobile app, you should request that a user with admin permissions enter the updates in DairyComp. Once the CAR table is updated on‑premise, the Platform will receive those updates during the next scheduled data synchronization. The mobile app requires an active data or WiFi connection to synchronize updates.
The Remark field allows you to type any notes that you would like to include about this animal when adding it to the event. The remark you enter here will be included as additional information in the animal's record.
Note that you will only see this option in the mobile event when REMRemark or comment is included as a condition in the DairyComp command that the Platform uses to create the event.
When DairyComp receives the updates, it records a Sold event for each completed animal and records the EDAYEvent day as the date the event was completed in the mobile app.
