2017 Product Innovation Award Winner- Herdwatch

Herdwatch can work with smartphones, tablets or PC, anytime, anywhere. Even without an internet connectivity it still allows farmers to easily record data. Herdwatch then adds value to these records by combining them with management information already in the system, saving the average farmer two hours per week.
In addition Herdwatch can work on duplicate devices under the same licence number. Herdwatch is BCMS (British Cattle Movement Service) and Red Tractor compliant and enables the recording of animal welfare and traceability events in order to maintain compliance with relevant legislation.
At Herdwatch we are passionate about making life easier for farmers.
