Hi Everyone,

The Herdwatch app is now available to farmers in Northern Ireland!

We are fully approved by DAERA and linked with APHIS. The App allows all farmers in the Northern Ireland to record their Animal medicines for Red Tractor and FQAS, Calf birth Registrations, Breeding Records and Weight recording.

I would love to hear what you think of the app and the new features like the scanning the medicines into your phone or the breeding notifications.

You download the app and sign into the Free-Plan by getting it from the Apple App store or the Google Play store or by clicking here
