The prize consists of a one year subscription to CashMinder and all of AgriNet products. In addition, training on all aspects of the products will also be provided.

Since 1994, AgriNet has been helping farmers make the right management decisions for more profitable farming, as well as looking after their legislative requirements. The company’s products cover the complete range of software for herd and financial management.

AgriNet HerdApp

As part of the prize, farmers will be given access to AgriNet HerdApp – the complete management and compliance tool for every Irish dairy and beef farmer.

Packed with features, AgriNet HerdApp allows farmers to carry out a range of tasks including: manage your herd using only your smartphone; share data with others; work offline when out of coverage; and switch easily between multiple herds.

  • Animal report – view detailed history for one individual animal;
  • Births – register calves with straight from the shed;
  • Moves – pick animals and get movement permits while in the yard;

Along with providing a whole host on on-farm benefits, AgriNet HerdApp is also linked with the ICBF and the Department of Agriculture. This allows for the seamless collection and generation of data by both parties.

Farm accounts

The winner of the Farm Free Competition may also choose the AgriNet HerdMaster system. This includes a farm accounts system, that is tailor-made for farming. It allows you to track your own finances, as well as preparing data for your accountant, discussion group or for the Teagasc eProfit Monitor system.

If you want to keep it simple, you can track you’re money on a cash basis. Or, if you want to know more about monies owed or owing, you can track bills and invoices.

The main process is to track all data through the bank and to make sure that all balances match with balances in the bank. From this information, a variety of reports can be generated for you, your farm advisor and your farm accountant.


In addition, the prize includes Cashminder – a simple and quick farm cash management system. It allows you to track your money and provide data quickly to your accountant, adviser or to the Teagasc eProfit Monitor system.

This data entry system is designed to work primarily around electronic data from online banking and dairy co-op systems.
