Herdwatch has been announced as winner of the Emerging New Business category in the prestigious SFA National Small Business Awards 2015.

Within 10 months this farming app and software system has revolutionised the way farmers manage their herd and compliance. It is something just for farmers, which gives them easy compliance, and access to valuable records anytime, anywhere, according to Herdwatch.

The aim of the SFA National Small Business Awards is to celebrate the achievements of small business in Ireland, and to recognise the vital contribution of the small business sector to Irish industry.

An Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who is Patron of the Awards, said that the Awards provide an opportunity to highlight the success of our small firms as they seek out new markets and innovations.

“Staying competitive is essential for growth and recovery and the Government will continue to do everything we can with our Action Plan for Jobs to support small firms across Ireland.”

Fabien Peyaud, Herdwatch Co-founder said that the team at Herdwatch is delighted with this recognition from the SFA for all the hard work that has gone into Herdwatch since our launch in February, which only came to fruition after two years of research with farmers and development by the team.

“The hard work has paid off as we have happy customers and have just launched a range of new features based on their feedback. We have a firm foundation to develop Herdwatch further into 2015 and beyond.”
