Farmers in Ireland are now catching a break with a new partnership between Herdwatch, the farm management app, and cattle marts all around Ireland. This collaboration is not just making farm life easier but also giving farmers a way to show off and sell their cattle using the Herdwatch Buy & Sell platform.

Herdwatch can save farmers up to three hours a week on paperwork all from their phone or PC. As well as this, It now gives farmers the free space to advertise their cattle for sale in Ireland and the UK online. Farmers can create a free account with Herdwatch and upload their animals for private farm-to- farm sales but also advertise cattle you may be taking to the mart. When creating an advert, farmers can select from a list of marts in Ireland and this will show up on their listing. This allows farmers to get eyes on their cattle before they enter the ring and build up positive interest around their stock. With this new Mart feature, farmers can select from a list of 90 marts in Ireland. Similarly, farmers who are looking to buy new stock can filter their search to include their location of choice and view cattle going to sale at upcoming events. From the Buy & Sell service, farmers can use the “Share” feature which will enable users to share their adverts to social media- Facebook, Instagram, Farm groups/ chats and more!

Buy & Sell by Herdwatch allows you to advertise & find animals for sale simply with a trusted network of over 20,000 Herdwatch members in Ireland & the UK. All of our members can use this service for FREE and all of our livestock adverts will continue to include ‘Verified’ animal information from the Herdwatch app for peace of mind.

Verified Cattle Adverts with Buy & Sell

Simply select the animals you wish to sell, add up to 3 pictures and add a video if you wish! Buy & Sell by Herdwatch allows sellers to share ‘verified’ animal information from the Herdwatch app including age, breeding, movements, weights & more which will help to increase the value of your animals. This service also helps buyers to simplify their purchasing decisions by allowing them to find the types of animals they want quicker whether that is by location, breed, age, weights & more quickly and with confidence in what they are looking at.
