How do I enter new/replacement EID's to existing animals?
The easiest and most efficient way to change the EID's of an existing animal/s is via Live Entry because it is automatic.
To manually change the EID of an existing animal, not in Live Entry:
PLEASE NOTE: If you are doing this process manually, it is imperative to take a record of the NLIS ID that you are changing to. You will need this number to identify the tag from the unallocated tag list.
You will also need to record the primary/visual ID of the animal, so that you can search for this animal by identification.
Assume that the new EID tag has an NLIS Id. of NB02032XSK00440 and the corresponding Tag No. is 140440, and this tag is listed in the Unallocated Tag List. (See. Electronic Id. > Unallocated Tag List menu option).
To view the change:
Note: the new corresponding EID and NLIS Id. have been automatically updated for this animal. (This Tag No./EID/NLIS ID. will no longer show on the Unallocated Tag List.)
