You might sell animals routinely, or maybe less frequently like once a year or seasonally. No matter how often your livestock might leave your farm, you likely want to retain information about the sale like who bought it, when, and for how much. You will also want to update it's status in Farmbrite and probably generate a bill of sale too. You can easily do all of this with just a few steps.
Watch the quick videos below each section for a walkthrough of each process.
Selling an Animal
- Navigate to the Livestock tab on the left
- Click on the animal you want to sell
- From the animal record, click the Record Activity button, and choose Sell Animal
- Add information about the sale:
- Notes and Keywords for you to reference later
- Date of Sale
- Sale Price
- Buyer's Name
- Select if you'd like to record the sale as a transaction in your Accounting system
- Choose if you want to generate a Bill of Sale
- Click Save
Complete a Bill of Sale
If you selected the option to generate a bill of sale, you'll next be shown an editable form to complete. You can click into any of the fields to add information like the seller's address, live stock markings, and more. When you're ready, you can click to print the bill of sale to get a paper copy. Note: The bill of sale will not keep customer information in Farmbrite after you print it.
Saving a Bill of Sale as a PDF Document
If you want to retain the customer's information, you can also save the bill of sale as a PDF and then upload it to the animal's record to keep a digital copy. When printing, select the option to Print to PDF. A copy of the bill of sale will be saved to your computer. Then, go to the Files section for the animal, and upload it there. You'll have a saved digital copy to reference in case you ever misplace your printed copy.
