As Herdwatch works offline all your medicine purchases and usages can be recorded on the spot as it happens..
You can simply scan the barcode or QR on medicines boxes or containers using a smart barcode scanner in the Herdwatch App. If the medicine has a QR on its packaging then Herdwatch will automatically insert the Batch number and expiry date of the medicine.
Herdwatch is fully compliant with Red Tractor, BCMS and APHIS. So, once you record your Medicine Purchases, Medicine usages and Feed Purchases in Herdwatch there’s no need to write them into any book!
Herdwatch comes fully stocked with the 800+ medicines approved by the VMD so recording a medicine purchase or treatment couldn’t be easier. We have a database of medicine barcodes which is constantly being added too. This allows farmers to scan their medicines purchases into the Herdwatch app using a smart bar-code scanner in the Herdwatch app.
Once a cattle treatment has been recorded in Herdwatch it will automatically calculate the withdrawal period for you so you know which animals are in meat withdrawal at all times.
Creating and managing animal group treatment is simple. You can create a group by purchase date, location on farm (.ie. In certain shed or on an out farm) or any other crtiteria you might have. This allows you administer and record treatments for the group as opposed to recording for each individual animal
No need to worry about compliance inspections once you have entered your data correctly. In the event of a medicine inspection or audit, you can get a report from Herdwatch which you can print off and show the inspector/auditor on the spot.
