I'm from Northern Ireland and use APHIS. How does Breedr work for me?
We are working to connect with APHIS for our Northern Ireland farmers as quickly as possible. In the meantime, you can export your herd details from APHIS as a CSV file and upload to Breedr via our Advanced Upload tool.
Our support team are on hand to help you, so please do send your CSV file to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask us to upload animals for you, if this would be easier.
How can I upload weight data that I already have?
Breedr can take your historical animal weight data and add this to existing animals in the platform or use this to aggregate data on animals that are no longer on farm.
To upload weight data or any activity data in file format, you will need to export this data as a .CSV file. Once you have the data in CSV format, you can use our Advanced Upload tool available within the web app only, to upload the data quickly and easily.
Our support team are on hand to help you, so please do send your CSV file to email@example.com and ask us to upload data for you, if this would be easier.
How can I view and search my animals by name or a number that isn't part of their passport?
We understand that everyone works differently and you may want to identify and search for your animals via a separate Visual ID, that is not related to your animal passport number.
In Breedr your animals can also be tagged with a VID of your choice, the VID will sit below the passport number within the animal view on the web and mobile app and can be used to identify your animals with a name or number that is specific to your farm.
The VID can be uploaded against your animal via the Advanced Upload tool, to do this you just need a CSV file of your passport numbers and the corresponding VID's.
