Inter-tracker transfer transactions can be entered into your livestock tracker from the main screen of the production tracker.

An inter-tracker transfer is a movement of livestock between “like” trackers on the same farm i.e. moving MA Cows from one dairy herd to another dairy or beef herd.

There are 2 ways to add in a transfer, the 'quick' method and the 'posting' method.

'Quick' Method

The 'quick' method to add a tracker transfer is to click into the column that says Transfer Out. You will then have the option to select which tracker to transfer to, which stock class, and the quantity.

If you wish to do so, you can also specify average weight, dollar value and add notes.

'Posting' Method

The option to enter an inter-tracker transfer transaction can also be found under Add Transaction, either as an actual or forecast.

This is the method you will need to select if you intend to post the transactions to your accounting software. An added benefit to doing to using this method is that you can add multiple stock transfers in a single go.

To record an inter-tracker transfer in this screen, you'll need the following information:

  • Transfer date

  • Whether you are posting to your accounting software (actuals only)

  • From stock class (from originating tracker)

  • To stock class inside of a to tracker (to destination tracker)

  • Quantity

Once the details have been filled out, you can click Save Transaction. This will then flow through to your tracker and reports.
