By simply scanning the barcode or QR on the medicine's box or container using the 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 also.
Herdwatch will also keep track of how much medicine you have used so you know what’s in your medicine cabinet at all times.
Herdwatch is fully compliant with Red Tractor and BCMS. 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.
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 milk withdrawal at all times.
Dairy Farmers tend to dose in large batches of animals. Using Herdwatch you can create a group treatment. This means you only have to create one medicine treatment for multiple animals.
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.
