When DairyComp receives the updates, it records an XID event for each completed animal and updates each animal to its new ID number. It records the EDAYEvent day as the date the event was completed in the mobile app.

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


  • If you have not entered the new ID for an animal in this event, the app will not include that animal when it sends the batch XID event updates back to DairyComp.
  • Any incomplete animals will remain visible in the mobile app XID event until you either remove them from the list or finish defining their details and process the changes again.
