Ensure that animals are always assigned to the correct group in Datamars Livestock, to match the physical group of animals on the farm e.g. Herd 1, Herd 2, Sick Mob.

This is important because the active tag solution will assess an individual animal's behaviour against the behaviour of all animals in a group. If the same unusual animal behaviour is recorded for all animals in the group, the behaviour will be attributed to an external event e.g. a loud noise, the presence of something unusual in the paddock or a weather event.

Using groups provides the active tag solution with a richer set of data for accurate animal monitoring.

Note: An animal can only belong to one group at a time.
