Mating report

Mating reports show the statistics for Matings that have been recorded during a selected date range.

To produce a Mating report  showing... you must have recorded... 
Number of dams mated – total and by stock class.
Average weight at mating.
Sire to dam ratio.
Mating dates.
Sires introduced and removed.
Days out.
Sire breeds.
Expected birthing dates – Start, Average and End.

Mating events

Dam weights at mating    

  • Mating statistics can be displayed by animal type, year of dam birth and dam breed.
  • The stock class on the mating report is the dam's stock class at mating.
  • If your dams are EID tagged, you can use reporting groups in this report.

Recording dam weights at mating

Follow these hints to record your mating weights. 

If your dams are EID tagged:

  • Record mating and mating weight events against the tags.
  • Mating weights must be recorded within 30 days before the start and 7 days after the end of mating.
  • If you are using event categories, use the Mating event category on the mating weight event.
  • If you are not using event categories the System will use the latest weighing event within the time period.

If your dams are not EID tagged or you do not have an EID mating weight:

  • Record an average mating weight on the Mating event.

Calculating expected birth dates

The system calculates expected birthing dates from the sire introduction date using commonly accepted gestation periods:

  • Sheep – 146 days
  • Deer – 235 days
  • Cattle – 283 days

If there are several sire introduction dates the System calculates an average date.
