Back fat can be registered both as single registration or as a registration linked to events, e.g. entries, services, farrowings, and weanings. If you want to do analysis on how the back-fat measurements change between two events e.g. from farrowing to weaning, then you will have to register the back-fat linked to these events.
Single registration of back fat
Enter the tab Sows/boars \ Condition. Enter the sow number, date, and back-fat.
Registration of back fat linked to event.
Open the window where you normally do you registrations e.g. services. Now you will have to change the layout so that it contains the column ”back-fat”. This option can be found under "Condition Sow". You can read the FAQ “How do I add or remove columns from my layout?” You can find this under FAQ – PigVision \General entries.
While entering services you can now register the back fat.
You will also need to make similar layouts for other events where you want to measure back fat.
After having registered for a period you can do analysis showing the development between two events e.g. from service to farrowing or farrowing to weaning. You will find these analyses in the tab: Analysis sows \ Effect analysis \ PigVision \ Distribution graph.
