Mob movements, all you need to know

How to move, split and merge mobs in the Mobile App and Web App. 

Move mobs

You can move a singular mob by just selecting the mob you want to be moved or you can move multiple mobs from within a paddock. Mobs can be selected from the mobs list or from the map. 

Handy feature: if you're attempting to move a mob that is within a withholding period, you'll receive a warning notification.

Mob moves are what drive the Days Grazed and Days Rested counters on each paddock, see here for more info.

Split a mob

Splitting a mob is similar to moving a single mob, except you change the number to split. The remainder stays in the paddock.

Mobile

  1. Select a single mob 
  2.  Select Move/Split mob 
  3. Select paddock to move to
  4. Define number to move 
  5.  Select Split Mob

  6. Select Split Mob

Quite often when splitting a mob it is for reasons like classing, weaning and splitting age groups. In the Advanced Splitting Options you can change the ages, classes and gender of the moving and remaining mob. Also see our guide on Bulk Processing of Livestock.

Merge mobs

Mobs can be merged on the condition that they are of the same breed and gender. If this condition is not satisfied, the mobs will remain separate within the paddock. There are two ways to merge mobs, (1) on entry to the paddock, (2) within the paddock.
