If you cannot see the “Farm Software Link” option on Afgood when trying to link Herdwatch to your Agfood account, your Herd may have been registered on Agfood as a Company with restricted access. 

If so, you must download and complete a form (DAFM Auth 2) and send it back to the Department. This allows you to create a herd keeper account for your herd which will allow you use the online features from Agfood. A link to the form can be found by clicking on the below button (just look for the Auth 2 form on the page):


Once completed, send the form to:

On-Line Services Section,
Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine,
Government Offices,
Portlaoise,
Co Laois.

If you have any queries in relation to the form, please contact the Dept Online Services support at Lo call Number 1890 252 118 or 0761 064424.

Once this form has been processed by Agfood you will then be issued log in details so the agent can log in and select Herdwatch as the Software Provider – allowing department interaction (Calf registration, movements, herd sync) to now be done through the Herdwatch app.
