Firstly you need to have completed the OWNER SETUP details and LOCATION SETUP in the left toolbar ( Setup ) in GMP Basic.

Now enter the DISPATCH LOCATION and enter the details of the new owner of the animals you intend to sell to.

The dispatch function is used to move animals from one location to another. Two categories of dispatch can be done:

1. Internal (within own animals)
2. External (to the next buyer or sales location)

Internal dispatches occur from one group of animals to another. The system keeps record of the numbers and the dates from where to where to.
Dispatches may also be done according to weight categories.

Internal dispatches to breeding groups are also conducted from here.

Animals are selected from a paddock location

This example illustrates heifers being moved to a breeding group

The heifers are handled in the race

The specific heifers are selected and then dispatched within the GMPBasic software management system.

Animal Dispatch Records

In Dispatch Animals select the animal type to which these animals belong e.g. cattle. This will display all the animals visible in that specific default dispatch location.

The heifers are selected from the ANIMAL TYPE in the dispatch drop down list. The selected heifers are moved to the next column, ready for dispatch.

By clicking on the DISPATCH (next) function, the no.of heifers are subtracted from the previous group and allocated to the new group / location.

A dispatch report is automatically created showing some information e.g. Tag number, breed, last weight and total animals dispatched in this session.

The system allows for DEFAULT Locations to be changed in Owner Locations in the SETUP menu function.

Internal dispatches to breeding groups are also conducted from here.


External dispatch functions:


External dispatches are conducted when animals are either sold or moved to a destination away from the place of normal keep.

The system produces a dispatch notification via e-mail to the next owner / destination.

A paper print out is generated for the driver of the vehicle which is used for movement control purposes. This paper print out acts as proof of ownership or of authorised animal haulage on behalf of the previous and current owner.

The new owner or next location can then IMPORT the animals to that specific site and into its GMPBasic software management system.

These actions when done via send & receive actions through an internet connection, automatically record the movements on the central data base for bio-security and movement control purposes.

All recorded information e.g. birth, weight, breeding, treatment etc. accompany the animal's records to the next electronic import site of GMPBasic
