Importing Your Herd File
You will need to request your herd data file from the BBU. Once you receive your herd data file from the BBU, save it in a location on your computer that will be easy to find when the time comes. Log into your CattleMax account, click the Cattle tab, and then the View All Groups and Interfaces.
Once the next page opens you will see Breed Interfaces on the right side of the screen. Click on Beefmaster Breeders United. This will take you to the Interface page.
Once the interface is open click on the link Import Herd Inventory. A popup box will appear with a place to attach the file you received from the BBU. If you have animals already in your account be sure to use the Sync feature to ensure duplicates are not made.
Click Import Animals and then give the system some time to update your records. This import will add animals, Registration numbers, EPDs, updated performance, calving history, and Pedigree.
