Our team and your account manager is here to help you every step of the way on your first or 50th trip through Trading. Our secure payment flow guarantees that you won't be out of pocket by protecting your money until the animals arrive on your farm and making sure you are paid once you've sold them.

Easy to use

The Trading status bar will show you on web and mobile exactly what step is next and what action you are required to do to move the trade forward. The app will notify you via a push notification when there is an update and you'll also receive an email so you're always up to date.

Once the selling farmer has marked the animals as shipped and the buyer farmer has marked the animals as received the status bar will change to complete. This allows the transfer of animal data from the selling farmer to the buying farmer. Data such as weights and medicine usage will transfer. If the buying farmer is BCMS connected and has opted into do movements these animals will automatically appear on your regulatory dashboard ready for you to approve and send the movement directly onto BCMS.

Your account manager, Mel, Simon, Angharah, Sue and Daniel are on hand to support you at any stage of the process.

Looking to sell?

Before you create your first trade you will want to add your account details, we will use this to disperse the money to you at the end of the trade so it is important that these are correct. You can do this in the settings page on web and they are only visible to Admins and Managers on your account so make sure you have user permission set correctly.

Once your listing is live you'll receive offers on your listing. You can receive multiple offers and anyone you reject will be able to offer again. Once you've got an offer you're happy with you can accept that offer.

The buyer will be prompted to make payment to Breedr and we'll notify you once we have received payment, this might take a couple of days. Once notified you should dispatch the animals and mark them as dispatched in the app, make sure your check that cattle are tagged in both ears and that you are sending the correct passports for the trade.

Once the seller has marked the animals as received we'll disperse the money less our service fee. If the seller does not mark the animals as received we will investigate using BCMS or a farm visit, rest assured we will ensure your payment is safe until we know we can release it.
