list it as progeny for that dam and sire.

as de-worming, vaccinations, nail trimming, hoof trimming, etc. You
can perform these tasks for a single
animal, or for any group
of animals in your herd at once.

separately. There is space for 32,000 characters to describe the symptoms,
diagnosis, and treatments for each entry and for each animal.
