How do I set up my Fill Profiles?

Each farm is different and requires a different set of Fill Profiles--aka short cuts. We use these to make it easier to enter data correctly and to give better results on reporting.

Couple of things to understand:

  1. Fill Profiles are highly flexible to meet the needs of different farms.
  2. Not all the data points are needed for each profile and/or farm.
  3. Key data is inherited from earlier fill profiles.  Most notably:
    1. Year (2019…)
    2. Month (Jan, Feb)
    3. Seed Source (Mooks, Ward…)
    4. Animal Type (Diploid/Triploid…)


Here are the standard Fill Profile Data Points:

So let’s do a few examples:

Nursery/Flupsy:

I start with small seed that is screened numerous times until it is bagged for growout. Here is an example of what the Fill Profiles might look like

Growout: Size is key: 

Farm gets seed from 2 hatcheries at 10mm and uses a tumbler with three different sizes.  I want to track which seed does better and what I have on the farm.
