Herd watch

Got the herd watch app at the 2015 ploughing match. Since then have had both a cross compliance and a Bord Bia inspection. Both of which have gone well, but only because I had the herd watch app as my paper work leaves a lot too be desired. The department of Agri inspector was so impressed by the herd watch app he rang me two weeks after my inspection too tell me that he had gone the app for his own farm. Score 97% out a 100 in the Bord Bia inspection which I wouldn't have got if I hadn't the herd watch app. It's a brilliant tool would highly recommend it to anyone keeping records for the department of Agri, Bord Bia or just for yourself.

The best just got better! Version 3

This has speeded up the whole registration of new born animals. Calfs are tagged and registered in a minute and no having to go back home to sit in front of a computer. It's all done! Animal remedies is a very good side to it too. Handy and very thorough! The app is worth checking out! It's by far the best farm app out there, and I've used quiet a few! 5 stars

Best farming app I have come across in a long time

Definitely the most simple, straight forward farming app I have used. Very easy to register new calf births, simple to keep compliance records for the the department of agriculture. Customer support is second to none. I would highly recommend this app.
