Signet clients can supply data to Signet in an electronic format.
All clients must supply data in exactly the same format – using identities for the sires and dams of their calves which exactly match the identities of these animals held on BASCO.
If you are using Farm or Herd Management Software to store your records, then it may be worth speaking to your software provider about the facility to export data to Signet.
The file specification for supplying new animals records is shown below. This file can be used to supply details for new animals (purchased cows and bulls) or calving information.
An Excel template is also available. This Excel file has an example in the top row.
