Goat / Sheep Farmer : GMPBasic

Capturing "old" numbers

ID tag, scan, weigh & treat the goats / sheep

All the laptop needs is a little bit of shade (a mobile office may even operate outside in extreme conditions as was experienced on this day)

The ideal situiation would be top have a small office or structure at the crush / race to do the computing work.

Alternatively use a set of plastic chairs & plastic table with an umbrella or a gazebo to reduce the effect of the harsh sun.

Sheep, tagged, processed and ready for future herd management to be implemented

FAMACHA - scoring is unique for Wireworm infestations in sheep world-wide. The score card method was developed by Drs Faffa Malan, Jan van Wyk, Prof Gareth Bath.

The software allows this concept to be used for treatment, genetic material selection on farm.
