Required: fodjan Pro | User rights to edit: Write permissions, owner or admin, to read: Read rights

With the page Overview in the menu item Rations you have an overview of all created rations and can directly view, edit or export them and of course also create new ones.

To do this, go to Rations > Overview in the left-hand menu.

Structure of the page

The page shows you all your feed groups. Click on the corresponding line to see all rations that have been created for this feed group.

The button bar at the top right

You can then see three buttons at the top of the page:

  • Button “Enter ration manually”: This button takes you to the manual entry of rations, read more here.
  • Button “Ration assistant”: This button takes you to the fodjan Pro assistant to adjust your ration and to receive ration suggestions.
  • Button “Export rations”: This button allows you to export all current rations for feed mixing, more here.
  • Button “Overview PDF”: With this button you can create an overview PDF which shows all your current rations of all groups side by side, more here.
  • Help: Use this button to access suitable help suggestions for the currently open fodjan view as well as access to the entire help centre.

In the feed group

Here you will automatically see the ration currently being fed or, if none is available, the last ration created.

Click on the “Show all rations” slider to expand the table of other rations.

In the ration table

  • the rations are sorted by creation date by default
  • In the first column, the green circle shows which ration has the most recent feeding date and is therefore also used for exports for this feed group.
  • Costs per animal & day, description, number of feedstuffs in the ration, estimated milk yield and feed health are also shown
  • The column with the magnifying glass shows open test orders for the release of rations -> you can use this function in the collaboration.
  • The editor column shows whether a consultant (briefcase symbol) or a farmer user has created the ration.
