Frequently asked questions
I don’t tag my lambs at birth, can I still add them to my Breedr account?
Yes, when logging a birth you can put the unidentified lambs into a Mob and when the time comes to tagging them, you can convert these into individuals.
How can I record my animal weights?
The mobile is compatible with a number of different weigh heads and EID stick readers which means you can capture the weights of your animals without touching the phone. If you don’t have this kind of equipment, we can supply them for you via our Shop.
Can I register medicine administrations?
The Breedr mobile app encompasses a virtual medicine cabinet, you can scan the QR code on the medicine bottle to add it to your cabinet, and then you can record a dosage to an animal. This is then recorded in your Medicine Record and Medicine Book report for regulatory audits. It will also populate your Flock Health Review report which provides insights into common causes of medicine usage.
I use a stick reader to capture a lot of my data, can I import this into Breedr?
On the web app Breedr has a data import tool which allows you to import data directly from any excel spreadsheet. You can use this to add animals to your account or import activity information, e.g. body condition scores.
Can I register movements through the Breedr app?
Not currently, but we are working with the LIS team so we can soon allow you to register your sheep movements via your Breedr account.
I only have Sheep on my farm, can I still use Breedr?
Yes, Breedr is available for managing one single species of your choice, or you can manage multi-species on the same account.
I farm my sheep across multiple holdings, can I have multiple holdings on my Breedr account?
Yes, you can add multiple farm addresses with their CPH numbers, then when you create a field and a pen, you can set the location by selecting what farm they are on. You can then move your animals between each appropriate field or pen.
Are there trading opportunities for sheep as well as cattle?
The Breedr trading platform is available for buying and selling sheep in just the same way as for cattle. We have a designated Business Development team who specialise in supporting Breedr farmers source and sell their stock, see the Trading page for more information.
