The Society's new Online Herd Book designed by Grassroots Systems Ltd is now live.
It is an interactive online herd book and contains all the information you would normally find in a published herd book.
Each member will find enclosed in the 2016 summer edition of The Moiled Times a two page letter stating their personal member number and access code for the Online Herd Book.
In order to access the online page please click the link below and enter your personal login details (as per your letter in July 2016)
The Online herd book system is controlled and maintained by the Breed Secretary, it is important to remember that the data online is a ‘shadow’ of the live data held by the Breed Secretary.
Any transaction completed by members online must be downloaded by the Secretary to the IMCS live system. It also works in the opposite way and transactions completed by the Secretary will be uploaded to the online herd book. This will most likely be completely on a weekly basis.
After your online transaction i.e. notification of a death, has been completed you should receive an email confirming your actions.
At present members have access to:
Manage your Herd – notify deaths and transfers
Animal Search – this will display the animal’s details as well as progeny
Member Search – this will display name, prefix and region
Birth Notifications and Registrations will continue to be done in the usual manner (see Registration Process)
I would urge you to check your personal details on page 2 of your letter (enclosed in the summer edition of the newsletter) and notify the breed secretary of any changes…or better still you can change it yourself online!
This new service will be of benefit to all our members and enable herd management to become both more time and cost efficient for all involved. It has taken some time to set up this online system and we expect it to be a work in progress over the coming months while both members and the Society become familiar with the features.
Many of you may already use this system with other societies that you are involved in so feedback and suggestions would be beneficial.
As we develop this online access we will keep you updated with information in The Moiled Times. We may occasionally email details or post reminders on our Facebook page, but don’t worry the same updates will appear in the newsletter.
