    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.
