This guide will walk through the process to add or update Other Events on your farm. The Other Events allow for the recording of custom items on dairies by utilizing the detail field and notes item in the event dialogue.
This event allows you to capture event specific information that cannot be captured or reported easily with our current events. There are 8 detail options to choose from for the Other Event type. To update the Other Event type you will follow the same steps as creating any other new event. An example would be if you would like to keep the heifer or bull or cull the heifer or bull.
