This guide will walk through a new setting which allows you to deduct from semen inventory via a bred event even if a unit of semen was not actually pulled from a tank on your farm. This applies to breedings performed on the mobile app or in a web browser. The setting is unchecked (off) by default.
To see how to use the basic semen inventory functionality in BoviSync follow this link
The setting is located under Setup --> Farm Setup --> Inventory and is called "Deduct inventory for all breedings"

Setting Disabled (Unchecked)
