When a heat attention is generated for a cow, several actions in Velos can be taken form the heat attention list. You can use this to update your administration. See below for more information about which actions you can take.
When you use other management software, enter new animal data in your management software instead of Velos.
Actions for multiple animals at the same time
Click on Actions in the left upper corner to take an action for multiple animals at the same time:
