Register calves from your smartphone, download your Herd directly into Herdwatch, and stay compliant by recording your Remedy Purchases and Usage. It’s very easy to use: ‘if you can text, you can use Herdwatch’
Herdwatch is a Mobile Herd Manager for Beef & Dairy Farmers, the result of 2 years of Research & Development by FRS Network (Farm Relief Services), a trusted farmer-owned Co-operative for over 30 years.
Herdwatch is the only cross-platform Mobile Service approved by the Department of Agriculture. This means farmers can register Calves directly from Herdwatch on compatible Smartphones, Tablets, Laptops & PCs in seconds, anytime and anywhere*. Pedigree Names & Sires will be sent to the Dept and onto ICBF etc…
Farmers can also download their Herd directly into Herdwatch from the Department’s online register (Agfood), there’s no need to manually enter all Animals.
Herdwatch will also assist herd keepers with Remedy Recording Compliance, as Remedy Purchases and Usage can be recorded directly in Herdwatch. We maintain a full list of Bovine Remedies approved by the Irish Medicines Board (IMB), so there’s no need to type them in. Note: Herdwatch Remedy Records are NOT shared with the Dept or any other third party.
