Spring 2024 herd inventory

Posted February 14, 2024

Due date: End of day March 6

Spring 2024 herd inventory was requested in January. This is a reminder to submit necessary disposals, reason codes or transfers to update your herd. All females listed on your active inventory after March 6 will be billed the spring THR assessment in July.


  • Females listed in the spring inventory are expected to calve between Jan. 1-June 30.
  • If your inventory is correct and no changes are needed, you do not need to submit anything.
  • Disposal codes are used to remove animals from your inventory.
  • Reason codes are used to keep females on your inventory active and are required for switching seasons.
