As Herdwatch works offline all your medicine purchases and usages can be recorded on the spot as it happens.
You can scan your medicine purchase records into the app using a smart bar-code scanner built in Herwatch. This will find the correct medicine and if it has a QR code on the packaging it will automatically input the Batch Number and Expirt date. 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, 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.
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.
Suckler 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.
