This can be either the Operator's cattle or a single external owner;s cattle. Each beast may receive a maximum of 12 drugs. New cattle entering the feedlot can have initial drugs recorded automatically if set. Pen feeding has a maximum of 12 feed items allowed each feed with the addition of hay if included. Feed items are either [solid] or [liquid] and recorded as such. A specialised report is available for each beast with all the data necessary for possible audit tracing. Indeed a lot of this program is built around maintaining sufficient data for any audit requirements for cattle, drugs and feeds. There are too many reports to list. Best to install and run the demonstration program to view same. Reports can be viewed or printed any number of times. There is no provision to record data directly from electronic scales. However the program can process the .csv (text) files downloaded from such scales.
