Electronic cattle reporting now by vast majority of farmers
Cattle farmers are holding their position at the forefront of electronic reporting.
Figures from the Rural Payments Agency's British Cattle Movement Service show the bar was raised yet again in the past month, with a record-breaking proportion of movements – 95.49% – reported online or on the self-service phone line.
Almost 90% of births and 70% of deaths were also reported electronically. This equates to 139,029 of the total 155,109 births being reported electronically; 860,425 of the total 901,016 movements; 174,765 of the total 249,199 deaths, and 1,174,219 of the total 1,305,324 overall transactions being reported electronically.
The BCMS manages 20 million cattle transactions every year, broken down into three million births, 14 million movements and three million deaths. The self-service phone line and online service are available around the clock. Other farm software packages are also available, which allow farmers to record electronically rather than sending paper forms through the post.
