Farming and the wider agriculture industry are an essential part of our daily lives, which Herdwatch and FRS Farm Relief Services are very proud to be part of. The importance of our members and all farmers' ability to maintain the food supply chain over the coming weeks will be critical to the fight against Covid-19.
As part of this battle against Covid-19, a lot of marts are closing their doors or operating under restrictions, meaning that some farmers will not have an outlet to sell or buy cattle at one of the busiest periods of the year.
Back in 2018, during the fodder crisis, hundreds of Herdwatch members reached out to help each other via the Herdwatch Fodder Exchange, with offers of fodder for sale to other farmers at a time of need.
Today, the Covid-19 crisis is threatening the farming and wider world, that is why we have decided once again to make use our technology platform to help connect farmers who need to sell animals with farmers who want to buy animals. Just let us know if you are looking for either and we will post it on our Covid Cattle Exchange Listings page.
