Apps and calving seasons.

Farmers have found a much easier and faster way to register calves to help them through the forthcoming busy caving season – they have found the Herdwatch app.They have said that the app is easy to use and it has saved them valuable time and hassle, particularly when registering calves. Farmers are extra strapped for time during the busy calving season that is approaching, so now is the time to do something about it. Herdwatch will have your calves registered in 30 seconds, there and then, straight to the Department of Agriculture’s system. Herdwatch is now used by over 4,000 farmers and Declan Buttle, a suckler farmer in Blackwater, Co. Wexford, said he tags the calves and then registers them on his phone while the cow is in front of him.“There can be no mistakes that way. I would be lost without it.” Farmers are using Herdwatch every day to manage their herds and eliminate farm compliance paperwork. see
