How to Update your Herd Inventory on MyHerd

May 28, 2020

Follow these steps to update and submit your herd inventory on MyHerd.org:

  1. Log into MyHerd and click on the “ToDo” task labeled “2020 Fall Herd Inventory Update needed.”
  2. MyHerd populates a list of females expected to calve this fall. Review and update the cow herd inventory.
    • If the populated list is correct, click the “Submit Inventory Billing” button.
    • To make changes to any cows listed, follow the steps below:
      • Click on the line of the female needing to be updated.
      • Click the “Disposal” button for females that were previously sold or culled and give the proper disposal code and date.
      • Click the “Reproductive Status” to mark females as “Next Season” if they’re bred to calve in the spring 2021 season, “Non-Exposed” if they haven’t been exposed to breeding conditions (this code can only be used for first time heifers) or provide a proper calving ease score for females not expected to calve this season.
    • Add new or additional females to the inventory; provide their registration numbers and adding them a herd ID.
    • Review each herd ID, and make corrections. Each female must have a unique herd ID, and it cannot be repeated within the herd.
  3. When the cow inventory list is up-to-date, click the “Submit Inventory Billing” button.
  4. One the “Submit Inventory Billing” button is clicked, the inventory is submitted to the AHA and the charges are billed.
