• Stock, dairy and crop codes

    When you create a new stock, crop or dairy code you will mostly follow the same process as creating any new code, though there are some pieces of information that you will need add.

    This additional information turns on tools such as the Livestock Rec. and their associated values, the Dairy Forecaster as well as reporting features in your database.

    This topic will make sure you get these settings right.

    Stock category code

    Follow the steps to set up a standard category code and ensure the Summary Group is set to Stock.

    Stock extended code

    Follow the steps to set up a standard extended code.

    Ensure the Type is set to Stock (purchases & sales). This turns on the Stock Details tab.

    1. Click on the Stock Details tab to fill out extra stock code information.

    2. Enter the SU equivalent for the stock code.

    TIP: If you have a Dairy code list, enter the SU equivalent as 1 to calculate per cow.
    1. Age to is to reflect industry standards and for tax purposes. Your livestock numbers age up to the next stock code at the end of the farm’s financial year.

    For example ewe lambs that are born in September 2016 (the 2017 financial year) will age at the end of the financial year (30 June 2017) and open as Ewe Hoggets on 1 July 2017.

    1. Breeding status.
    • Breeding allows progeny to be allocated to the parent code, for example, MA ewe, 2th or ewe hogget.
      This then calculates the breeding percentage in the Livestock Screen and in the EFS report.

    • Secondary Breeding allocate this status to ewe hoggets.
      By selecting Secondary Breeding, the breeding percentage for ewe hoggets is separated from the main mob so that it doesn’t lower the percentage of MA ewes and 2th's.

    • Progeny allocate this status to animals born on the farm i.e. lambs, calves and fawns.
      It then allows you to record born events for these animals.

    • None - this is for stock that don’t fit into any of the categories above, such as bulls, steers, rams and wethers and anything that is too young to produce offspring.

    Dairy codes

    As with stock codes manually creating a new dairy code requires you to fill in some additional fields in the extended codes. This will help you utilise the Dairy Forecaster and other reports to their full potential.

    Dairy category code
    Follow the steps to set up a standard category code and ensure the Summary Group is set to Product.
    Product of links the livestock category code you use to track stock movement in the Livestock Reconciliation screen.

    Dairy extended code
    Follow the steps to set up a standard extended code.
    Ensure the Type is set to Milk solid. This will activate the Dairy Forecaster and pull KPI's into the EFS report.

    You will also need to fill in the Milk Production tab with the relevant information.

    Crop codes

    If you want to record your crop yield and income calculating hectares utilised and tonnes produced, this can be done through the Crop Reconciliation.
    In order for the Crop reconciliation to be activated the Summary group in the Category code, and the Type in the Extended code, need to be set to Crop. There are no additional fields for crop codes.
