This new service is an extension of the work carried out by ScotEID who operate the ScotMoves system on behalf of Ministers and the cattle industry in Scotland.

New to Breedr and want to know what we can do for your farm?

Hear how Scottish beef producer Lois Black has been tackling inefficiencies in her business and selling her cattle at higher prices using a free precision livestock app. 

Lois Black, who farms near Greenock, outside Glasgow, has been using the Breedr app since October to help monitor weight gain in her herd of 70 Simmental, Shorthorn, and Angus cattle, and is now selling them using Breedr’s online marketplace.

Using Breedr is also helping Ms Black identify her inefficiencies as she moves towards a more grass-based system. “Weighing the cattle and using the app has highlighted where my weaknesses are,” she says. 

“Breedr gives me all these graphs about how efficient I am, and it showed me that my cattle were actually losing weight over winter, which I didn’t know. So now I’m looking at making the grazing season longer, trying to get more out of my grass in the growing season, and perhaps get in a nutritionist,” she adds.

Breedr’s other features are a big help too, cutting out paperwork and the need to log into multiple platforms. 

“I have all the information I need at my fingertips on Breedr,” says Ms Black. “I just log in and I can see how many cattle I’ve got on my farm at any one time, who the dam and sire are for each, vet and medicine history and weight. Plus, it collates all your data from CTS Online. 

“It’s just so useful, and it’s aesthetically pleasing and easy to use. Someone from Breedr even phoned me up when I got it and talked me through how to use it.”
