    My subscription is coming up for herdwatch and I'm looking for alternatives for a suckler /sheep farmer.

    Anyone here use both at some stage , any feedback on herdapp by agrinet appreciated

    Ex Herdwatch using herdapp now

    Dairying and sheep here. they recently added sheep and have sorted out a few glitches.

    You can disable the dairying in settings.

    Sound people running the show and nearly always on hand to help you. I think they give you a month trial free.

    It's takes a little while to get used to. (for me anyway) but good tutorials on YouTube etc.

    One thing I would do is ring them asking do you have to cancel subscription as you are leaving, and see if they will offer a better deal. Herdwatch had a six months for 60euro offer when I tried it.

    €195 for herdwatch and they don't have a section for sheep

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,084 ✭✭✭orm0nd

    Herd app is €60 per year minimum for 60 bovines and €1 per head to a maximum of €250 including vat

    eg. 60 or less cattle €60

    100 cattle €100,

    250 cattle €250 ,

    500 cattle €250

    sheep numbers not taken into consideration.

    I have herdwatch at the moment for sucklers and sheep. First time using icbf website as well and looking at their herdplus. Is this pretty much the same as herdwatch as is it different in that you can access all the ratings info and other stuff?
