Innovation Award winners at the National Ploughing Championships 2014, Herdwatch, are set to head to the event again this year to launch their enhanced App features. Herdwatch makes life a whole lot easier offering dairy, suckler and beef farmers easy compliance at the tap of an icon. The unique App has gone from strength to strength throughout the year with over 1,000 farmers already signed up, and was also crowned ‘AIB Start-up Academy winners 2015’ with a prize fund worth €250,000 and awarded ‘emerging new business’ at the Small Firms Association Awards.
Herdwatch will be at the Ploughing Championships in Ratheniska for the three days 22nd, 23rd and 24th of September, ready to put farmer’s herds in their hands with a free month trial of the App. The team will be offering anyone who signs up at the Ploughing a very special deal and those who join Herdwatch will also be in with a chance of winning a high-tech tablet each day.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the newest member of the Herdwatch team #Herdie, who will be out and about on the lead up to the event, you may even find him thumbing a lift to the Ploughing! If you fancy a GAA Jersey in your county colours, find #Herdie at the Ploughing, take a snap, tweet #Herdie and you could be getting your hands on that prize.
You will find the Herdwatch Team at the Ploughing in the Innovation Arena and the FRS (Farm Relief Services) stand R26, Stand 440.
