Internal ostrich dispatches in a registered compartment

Ostriches are regularly moved from one paddock to another internally in the same registered ostrich compartment. This allows for age group management and allows for head counts as required for the BSM monthly audits.

 

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

 

2. Internal Ostrich Movement - No movement permit is required          
(Within a Registered Compartment)

The details of the ostriches and from which location (holding pen) to which other location are recorded into the system. Manual records can be kept on a clip board but ultimately have to be processed within the Owner's GMPBasic  - Ostrich mode system. This can be updated to the server the next time when the owner connects to the internet.

 

A. Internal (within own animal groups)
B.
External (to the next buyer or sales location) The relevant Movement permit MUST be obtained from the SAOBC after the ostriches have all been bled for avian influenza serology testing.

This
movement permit number must be entered into the GMP Ostrich software system against the birds ID no's in the system's dispatch function. (Manual & electronic Dispatch  notification function)


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.

 

Animals are selected from a paddock location. This example illustrates ostriches being moved to another group. The ostriches are handled in the race.

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

3. Dispatched animals list with its specific dispatch Ref. No.

4. The system affords you the opportunity to be able to select the whole farm or a specific paddock, camp or holding pen. Hereby general or specific data allocation may be made to the ostriches.

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

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

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

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

8. Internal dispatches to breeding groups are also conducted from here. A dispatch report is automatically created showing some information e.g. Tag number, breed, last weight and total animals dispatched in this session.
