2016 Prince Philip Award Winner - FRS Network Developments

FRS Network Developments were presented with the RABDF Prince Philip Award 2016, for their Herdwatch Farming App.  The judges thought the Herdwatch Farming App was a simple piece of low-tech that met the need of these cash strapped times.  It uses the everyday technology of a smart phone and iCloud to store and download dairy data that can be tapped into by any member of a farm team who is equipped with a modern mobile telephone.
