Removing the barriers to the uptake of electronic recording of sheep flocks

This pilot project aimed to work with up to 1500 eligible sheep farming businesses to better understand their concerns about the use of EID technologies and to provide them with access to information, training and support relating to the practical benefits of electronic recording.

P1000050 300bThe project utilised a combination of online training and provided a financial incentive of £500 for participation and to encourage the use of technologies that would ultimately lead to increased operational efficiencies and improved performance.

Participating sheep farmers provided a range of information with data obtained online via the online registration process, on completion of the web-based training and via follow-on surveys.

The information gathered focussed entirely on collecting on participants previous attitudes and experiences of recording (electronically or manually), on their experiences in using EID equipment and software to date as part of this project and what they would hope to achieve through the continued use EID recording on their flock.

The project ran from November 2014 to August 2015.

A total of 1966 businesses registered to participate and 1716 businesses completed the project.
