Correcting an Incorrect Pasture Movement
We all make mistakes from time to time. CattleMax allows customers to correct the movement date and/or the destination pasture of animals one individual at a time.
NOTE: This is an individual animal correction - does not correct a group movement!
Changing Incorrect Current Pasture Location or Date
Start by going to the activity timeline of the animal in question. Click on the date of the most recent pasture movement event. The resulting pop-up box will allow you to perform one of two actions after clicking Edit:
Option 1: You can click Undo Movement to completely delete the movement record and return the animal back to the moved-from pasture. To then move the animal to the correct current pasture, you would then simply click on Record New Activity > Change Pasture > Select the correct pasture movement date and pasture > Change Pasture.
Option 2: You can simply correct an incorrect date or current pasture location through Update Movement. To do this, modify the date and/or the moved-to pasture prior to clicking Update Movement. Caution: You should not make the current movement date a date earlier than a previous movement on the Current Activity tab.
****NOTE: Neither Undo Movement nor Update Movement will impact the breeding record of a cow. This means that if she was incorrectly placed in a pasture where a bull was then "turned in" while she was still in that pasture in CattleMax then that inaccurate breeding record will remain on her timeline until you manually delete or archive the record from her breeding tab.
Changing Incorrect Historical Pasture Location or Date
Historical pasture movements can only be corrected by undoing each movement in chronological order until the incorrect movement is reached. Once that is completed then the correct series of pasture movements can then be re-entered one at a time.
Start by going to the activity timeline of the animal in question. It is important to note, with pen and paper or by printing the current screen, the CORRECT series of pasture movements for the animal in question.
Then, click on the date of the most recent pasture movement event > Edit > Undo Movement > Ok. Repeat this process until the incorrect movement is reached and removed.
After clicking Undo Movement on the incorrect entry, you will individually add the correct pasture movements in chronological order until the data is correct and the animal is showing to be in the correct current pasture.
To add a pasture movement on an individual animal, click Record New Activity > Change Pasture > select the correct pasture movement date and Moved-To pasture > Change Pasture.
