Grazing

Farmbrite’s grazing features make it easy to keep track of where you animals are grazing, how long they’ve been in a certainly field and to easily determine when you might need to rotate your herd to greener pastures.

You can access the grazing features from fields, livestock, and individual animals

Viewing all Fields actively being grazed

To view all your fields that have animals actively assigned to graze on them, navigate the main “Livestock” section and click on the “Grazing” tab. This view provides easy access and an overview of the current fields in your grazing rotation. You’ll see each field that has animals actively assigned to it, including the field’s Name, Year, Size, and the number of animals actively grazing, and the average number of days those animals have been grazing in that field. Click on the field name or the animal count to access the grazing details for that field.

Moving animals into field

From the “Grazing” tab on an individual animal, click on the “Move into Field” button. You will be prompted you to select a new field and the date the animal(s) started grazing. You can choose the field by clicking on the “Move to Field” button in the list of fields.

Grazing History

After you’ve assigned an animal to a field to graze, you can view the history of grazing activities for the that animal on the “Grazing” tab of an individual animal. There you will find a list of all that animal’s grazing actively, including the field the animal grazed in, when they started, ended and the amount of time in the field.

Click on the name of the field to view it.

Click on the Red “X” in the right actions column to delete the record from Farmbrite. Note Deleted records cannot be recovered.

If you have a lot of grazing records, you may need to page through the list to find the one your looking for. Use the paging buttons at the bottom right of the gird to move between pages of records.

This feature is only available on certain plan types.
