Herdwatch and Farmplan, which is part of Proagrica, have announced a new partnership that will see all Farmplan livestock software customers upgrading to the Herdwatch platform, starting this month (June 2023).
This partnership will upgrade those customers who are currently using Farmplan’s livestock software suite, specifically dedicated to sheep and cattle products such as Livestock Manager, Cattle Manager and Sheep Manager. Herdwatch will deliver a “robust, integrated, and feature-rich” platform.
Customers who are using Farmplan’s financial, cropping or hardware products and services will continue to have access to the same unrivalled support, as these areas remain unaffected by the partnership.
Fabien Peyaud, CEO and co-founder of Herdwatch said: “We are honoured that Proagrica has selected Herdwatch as the natural solution to upgrade their Farmplan livestock software.”
“We have a very similar ethos and look forward to welcoming customers to the Herdwatch platform as we continue our investment in the future of British farming.”
“Our easy-to-use, cloud-based solution can be used by multiple users, to access multiple holdings, on multiple devices, making it the perfect solution for Farmplan sheep and cattle software customers.”
Piers Costley, Farmplan by Proagrica Managing Director, said:
“Great care was taken to find the perfect partnership to provide this upgrade to our cattle and sheep software customers.”
“Herdwatch is already used on more than 18,000 farms across the UK and Ireland. They provide access to cutting edge technology and were deemed the best suited partner on the market.”
“Herdwatch is a natural and logical partner that will equip users with access to valuable cloud integration to future-proof their operations,” Costley added.
Herdwatch, the number one farm management software, is now used on over 18,000 farms across the UK.
The app which allows farmers to manage their farms at their fingertips, caters for both livestock and sheep farmers with Herdwatch for cattle, and their brand-new sheep management app Flockwatch, catering for all sheep farmers.
The app saves farmers, on average, three hours per week on farm paperwork, increasing productivity on the farm and allowing farmers to monitor and manage their herd or flocks performance more efficiently and ultimately increase profitability.
It allows users to streamline a number of tasks including easy calf registrations and animal movements, record batch medicines quickly and record weights and ADG tracking.
The Herdwatch app for cattle and sheep can be downloaded in the App Store or at www.herdwatch.com
