Herdwatch Automate

Automate is a brand new service from Herdwatch which allows you to send your key farm data into Herdwatch by simply taking a picture of the invoice, statement or docket. Automate will automatically extract all relevant data from the document and then allow you to see a summary of all your farm input and output costs within the Herdwatch app, so you can see how you’re doing, before your accountant tells you and it’s too late!

We have just finished the first version which can process kill sheets from your factory. However, soon Herdwatch Automate will be able to process ALL of your important data from farm documents including kill sheets, mart statements, feed invoices, vet receipts & much much more…. 

We’d like to hear what you would like to see in Herdwatch Automate and encourage you to contribute to this exciting project by sending us any documents that you would like to be able to import into Herdwatch in the future. As always, your data will be secure with Herdwatch and we will use each document to help accelerate Herdwatch Automate’s ability to read more & more document types over the next few weeks and months!!! 

How to send Kill sheets into Herdwatch today:

  • Tap the big orange plus button

  • Select “Job/Note Picture”

  • Add a Description

  • Tap “Add Image” and select/take a picture of your kill sheet (one that includes the grade, dead weight and price) and set the Image type as “Kill sheet”

    • NOTE: You will need to be on our “Complete” plan to attach pictures, but you can upgrade anytime within the process
  • Tap Next and Save. Tip* – There’s no need to select animals on this record we will automatically link up the animals for you once Automate has processed the document.
