What does it do?

Connecting your Breedr account to BCMS means you can send activities to BCMS directly from Breedr, for complete compliance without the hassle of paperwork.

Certain activities in the mobile app will generate BCMS movements ready for you to approve & send to BCMS in the web portal.

Mobile activities include:

  • On movements: create animal/birth, scan passport, move between holdings

  • Off movements: mark off farm, moving between holdings

  • Deaths: log death, mark as dead

  • Births: create animal/birth, scan passport

By connecting your Breedr account to BCMS you can also:

  • Generate a Herd Book report that is compliant with FABBL, Red Tractor, DEFRA and Trading Standards inspections

  • Use your phone camera to scan in passports to move animals on farm

  • Works offline: log births in the shed which automatically upload when you're back in signal (make sure you fire the app up in wifi or coverage first)


How does it work?

Your Breedr account needs to be linked to BCMS (via the Breedr settings) to support BCMS Movements for your holding. If you haven't yet connected your Breedr account to BCMS, follow these steps to get linked

Then, go to the farm settings page on the web app to opt in by:

  1. Ticking the 'Send registrations and movement to BCMS' option

  2. Clicking 'Save changes'

Now you're good to go!


So, how do I register a movement?

Registering a movement is a two step process within your Breedr account:

Step 1: Generate movement activity

Movements are first generated by completing certain activities on the mobile app or web portal, such as:

Step 2: Approve movement activity

All generated movements are collected within the Regulatory Page on the Breedr web portal and require final approval to send to BCMS for processing (see below).

The guides below will show you how each specific movement is generated within Breedr and can then be approved and sent for processing.

Within the Regulatory Page, you will then have the final option to abort, reject, change date, or approve a generated movement:

  • Abort: Aborting a movement means that the movement will not be sent. The movement will still be recorded in Breedr but it won't be transmitted to the regulator and it will disappear from the list.

  • Reject: Rejecting a movement means the movement will be reversed in Breedr and it will not be transmitted to the regulator's system.

  • Change date: Move-on and move-off approvals only. Allows you to change the movement date that will be reported for these movements.

  • Approve and send: Approving a movement confirms the movement is correct and transmits it to the regulator's system.
