Two animals are in the crush with a panel reader and a red box has appeared on the Visual Identification (VID) display. What is this and how can I record data against the animals?
A panel reader will continue to read an Electronic Identification (EID) while its in range, however it will only send the tag to Stockbook once. If two animals are in reader range it will continue to send tags alternately to Stockbook until one animal is removed from its range. Stockbook will queue the animals, which is displayed as a red box with a number on the VID display (top left corner). This number represents the number of animals in the queue.
