Events and Basic Event Entry

Events in BoviSync are important things that happen to an animal that should be or are recorded. They might be when an animal is dried off or when an animal freshens. All events have a few things in common: an animal ID associated with the event, an event type (fresh, dry, etc), a date, time, and a technician associated with the event. With that basic knowledge of events, we will now proceed to show you how to enter events in BoviSync. There are several different ways to enter events in BoviSync.
