Record every visit to the barn and note anything you may remotely want to save. Some entries are transferred into various other record forms. Something insignificant today may be important later. Here, Lucky was off feed on 7-16-96, which may indicate the early stages of illness. Will Daisy recycle in 5 days, 16 days or 24 days? A circle around the names of does in heat makes entries really stand out.
