Society Horn and Colour Link

Society Horn and Colour Link

Preamble

At the request of certain cattle societies, we have developed a link between the Horn and Colour fields on the Edit Animal window and Society Horn and Society Colour in the Society Details tab on the Edit Animal window.
The purpose of this link is so when you are adding cows or calves for registration purposes, adding the Horn and Colour on the Basic Details tab in the Edit Animal window. Will link directly to the Society Horn and Society Colour in the Society Details tab and apply the related codes for Society Horn and Society Colour when you export registrations (as shown below).
If you would like to know how to export calf registrations click here.
