No ICBF data – such as €uro-Stars and EBI information – will display on mart boards for a two-day period, the federation has confirmed.
It is due to perform a scheduled upgrade of its database, which will impact all of its support services.
The federation released a statement advising HerdPlus members, who intend to sell animals this coming weekend, to generate a sales catalogue using its software.
It confirmed that its normal service will resume next Monday, July 25th, 2022.
In a statement, a spokesperson for the federation said:
“Due to essential maintenance, all ICBF services, including the website, email, and telephone support, will be unavailable from 7 am on Friday 22nd to Sunday, July 25th. Normal service will resume on Monday, July 25th.”
“We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this interruption. We will get back to all queries from Monday, July 25th, 2022,” the spokesperson concluded.
