The user may select a different scoring date by touching the Date text field. A date selector will appear. Select the desired date and touch OK.
Before you begin to score animals, you must enter the number of animals contained within the pen. Touch the Number of animals in the pen text field to display the numeric keypad. Touch the desired number of animals and press Done. It may be helpful to identify the pen if you plan to do more than one by touching the Pen ID text field and typing an ID. Touch Done to complete entry.
The picture examples along the right hand side of the screen may be switched between Standing and Walking by touching the Switch to Walking button at the bottom of the screen.

As you score lame animals the count and percentage will be indicated in the text boxes below the scoring buttons. Normal cows are not scored. If an animal is scored in the wrong category, touch the switch below the scoring buttons to the Subtract position and touch the same score button.
