When you are joining a group of sires to a mob of females, it is possible to set up a 'Multiple Sire Group' so that you have a record of which sires were used for that joining.
Multiple Sire Groups allows you to represent a group of sires by one 'animal' in Stockbook. This allows for a multiple-joining situation for a group of dams, by just quoting the 'multiple sire' as the sire.
To add a new sire to the group, from the 'Available Sires' list, either double click on the sire you wish to form part of the group or click on the sire to highlight and then click on the left-pointing hand. Repeat this process until you have all the Sires for your Multiple Sire Group listed in the Sires in Group box..
To remove a sire from the group, from the Sires in Group list, either double click on the sire or click on the sire to highlight and then click on the right-pointing hand.
Note: Only 'live' sires will show in the Available Sires List. If your sires are listed as semen or pedigree only, they will not be available to add in to a multiple sire group.
If you have a registered stud and will be registering the multiple sire group with your society, enter the Society ID that your society gave you for this multiple sire group. Or for sheep producers the SG ID from Sheep Genetics Australia. Refer to Sheep Genetics or your Breed Society for further information on the correct ID required.
