You need to set the draft (sort) times and the type of drafting you are doing. The type of drafting will determine which animals are selected by the algorithm for drafting. For example, if you draft for heat, animals on heat will be selected. If you draft for health, animals with potential health issues will be selected.

Notes:

  • Drafting (sorting) can only be configured in the web app.

  • You can only configure drafting (sorting) if you have admin permissions.

  • How to give the draft (sort) setup a name and set the reason for the draft (e.g heat, health).

In addition to the draft times and reasons for drafting, you can also modify some of the other draft settings which appear at the bottom of the drafting configuration dialogue:

Suggest multiple drafts per heat - (default is OFF) Enable this option if you want animals to be drafted more than once during the period they are on heat.
Caution! Enabling this option could result in an animal being inseminated more than once.

Draft animals in heat marked as do not breed - (default is ON) Disable this option if you want animals marked Do not breed to be drafted.
Caution! Disabling this option could result in an animal unsuitable for breeding being inseminated.

Draft animals in heat marked as dry - (default is ON) Disable this option if you want animals in heat marked Dry to be drafted.
Caution! Disabling this option could result in a dry animal being inseminated.

Draft animals in heat in Voluntary Waiting Period - (default is ON) Disable this option if you want animals in their VWP period to be excluded from the draft list automatically.
