If you want to record specific data on the XRS2i/XRS2 EID stick reader (XRS2) such as pregnancy data, or where the animal came from, you need to create a new data field on the XRS2i/XRS2. You can also use animal data fields to upload your own custom data such as information from a veterinarian or other herd management software.
Watch the video to learn how to:
Create a new animal data field on the XRS2i/XRS2 EID stick reader
Check that the new data field is turned on to use
Note: In the video the XRS2 is used as the example. The accessories and set up is the same for the XRS2i.
Note: Depending on what information field you are creating, you will need to select different data types (a number, a date, text, an animal ID tag, or a list of values) and information fields. There are three types of information fields:
This is information that changes over time and should be recorded each session, such as weights or body condition score.
This is information which will not change over the lifetime of the animal, such as breed, sex, date of birth.
