Future Crofting: Don’t Fear the Gear

Don’t fear the new gear.

This meeting will look at two different technologies for livestock which were available under the Scottish Agricultural Capital Grant Scheme.  Sheep EID stick reader and a handheld device- what is the difference? What do they do?

Jane Thomson- Shearwell will explain what they are, what they can do and how you can use them for you and your flocks’ benefit.

We will also hear from Stephen Fagan – Moocall about calving detectors- How do they work, how to use them and how can they benefit your herd.

Crofters will tell us about their experience and about the benefits these technologies have brought them.
