This guide will walk through the process of creating a Sold-Cull event with either reason: "Sold to Finisher" or "Sold to Dairy" and a limited history copy. This method will sell an animal from farm A to farm B. This process will create a new animal at farm B with limited history.
You can only perform these events from BoviSync web.
Before you can sell animals to the receiving farm you will need to make sure you have "Move Only" permission at the receiving farm. A user with admin permissions will need to provide you with "Move Only" permission. Follow this guide to for that process by clicking on this link
If you already have the "Move Only" permission at the receiving farm you can proceed to the next step.

Select a Cull Type of "Sold-for-Dairy" or "Sold-to-Finisher"
Select the destination pen. This is the farm you are selling to. *Note: you will only see the receiving pens for which you have access to. If you do not see any pens either you do not have access to the farm you are selling to or the farm does not have any receiving pens setup.
