Link EIDs to mobs

You can link the EID tags on an EID file to an existing mob on your farm in FarmIQ. 

Use this feature to:

  • link EIDs to a mob
  • link EIDs that are already on your farm to a different mob
  • re-link EIDs that have dropped off a mob in FarmIQ
  • check to see if EIDs are already linked to a mob.

To link or re-link the EID tags in an EID file to a mob click here
  To link or re-link the EID tags in an EID file to a mob:
  1. On the Navigation bar, click Stock > Management > Link EIDs to mobs.
  2. Select a file from your computer or tag library.
  3. If the System shows that there are unregistered tags or errors on the file, you must deal with them before continuing.

  4. Select a mob.
  5. Select the traits in the mob that you want to attach the tags to.
  • If the EID file has multiple stock traits in it, you must link each trait group in the file to a trait group in the mob.
  • If the stock traits on the file differ from the traits you have selected, the traits on the EID tags in FarmIQ will be changed to match the traits in the mob. This change happens only in FarmIQ. The tags will still have the original traits recorded against them on your indicator.
  • When the tags are successfully linked to the trait groups in the mob, this symbol appears:

  1. You can select or add a Supplier.
  2.  If there is Additional file data, you can record it.
  3. You can record additional Notes or upload Attachments.

  4. Click Save.

    • The System confirms that the activity has been saved.
