AgroSoft Ltd has announced that it has secured a 3-year contract with Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) to provide on-farm production recording and benchmarking for Scottish pig producers.
As part of the agreement, AgroSoft Ltd, will make their specialised software available to all Scottish pig farmers and will also provide quarterly industry benchmarking data to QMS. This will be shared with all participating farmers.
AgroSoft Ltd’s new contract adds two new iOS and Android-compatible mobile apps to enable producers to easily record breeding and feeding herd data in real time, providing insight into individual sow history, pig movements and everyday tasks across the herd. The software aims to improve the timeliness of decision-making on farm, whilst also reducing data duplication
Commenting on the announcement, James Nesling, managing director of AgroSoft Ltd, said they are delighted to be working with QMS and Scottish pig farmers: “This new agreement with QMS means that we can continue to provide market-leading software and management information to Scottish pig farmers, helping the industry to maximise efficiency and business performance.”
Allan Ward, pig specialist, from QMS, commented saying the provision of the AgroSoft production recording and benchmarking software package will enable Scottish pig producers to increase their sustainability and productivity through utilisation of weekly inputted data. He said: “These reports show areas for improvement and management changes. The anonymous benchmarking element allows producers to see how well they are doing against other producers for all the main key performance indicators (KPIs) used within the industry.”
