Tips for completing your Autumn Flock Return - ONLINE
When you first open your sires page remove any Sires which are already there by highlighting in top box and clicking on Remove.
To enter your 2013 used Sires
Enter either Ram Reg No. eg 97135 or Flock Book Number eg FBC:13:027 in small top box.
Click Spy glass
Ram should appear in both books
Enter the date the Ram was used for Ai or the date he was put out with Females - use date format 01/09/2013
Then add next Ram and his dates
Continue like this until all Rams used have been entered.
If you have used a Ram which is not yet registered – leave him off your Sires page completely. Complete a Ram Proforma and add note at bottom asking us to add to your Sires List and the date he was used. If he is the only Ram used you will have to tick – No registered Rams used - and we will adjust once proforma received in office.
