Set up your own Favourite on a 5000 series indicator when you're trying to record animal information at different times of the year

Favourites are saved configurations on the 5000 series indicators (XR5000, ID5000 and JR5000) that help you with repetitive or particular animal recording tasks. You may want to set up a new Favourite configuration for your property to make it easier and faster to record animal data.

For example, you can set up a Favourite on your XR5000 for pregnancy scanning your dairy cows and to record the cow's Electronic ID (EID), Visual ID (VID), life time or birth ID (LID), and pregnancy scan results (early, mid, late or empty). This ensures the data is recorded in a standardised format and can be used to make on-farm decisions about managing calving or dry-off dates.

Watch the video below to learn how to:

  • Check the data fields are turned on in Information to display and record

  • Create a new Favourite setup

  • Start a new session and select the Favourite

In this video, we use the XR5000 indicator as an example. Use the same process if you have an ID5000 or JR5000 indicator.

Note: Before creating a Favourite, you must turn on all the data fields and settings you would like to have for the favourite.
