"We run a pedigree Limousine herd and use the Herdwatch NextGen app for all of our farm management records. We sell bulls and heifers, so when a farmer comes in to buy animals, I can use Herdwatch to tell them on the spot when the animals were last cycling, their last weights, TB tests, breeding indexes, treatment history and much much more. I find it an essential part of my farming management and I'd be lost without it."
