Verified Final

Herdwatch has teamed up with DoneDeal.ie to help more of it's members harness the power of data when buying or selling animals.

'Verified by Herdwatch' is a new decision support tool that lets farmers share verified animal information including age, breeding, movements, latest weights & more with other farmers on the DoneDeal platform.

Sharing this key animal information with other farmers will help increase the value of animals by using data to prove their history and help buyers simplify their purchasing decision, without having to ask for more information or wasting diesel going to see animals without the facts knowing what they are really going to see.

How does it work ?

It couldn't be easier:

  1. Select the animals you want to sell in Herdwatch & Generate a Verified Code by selecting the 'Verified Ad'.

2. Using the 'Copy Code' button and then paste it into DoneDeal when creating your DoneDeal ad.

3. The animal information will appear on your DoneDeal ad, it is that easy...
