RDPE - Countryside Productivity Scheme - Small Grant Scheme

We are happy to announce that the Small Grant Scheme has been re-opened in England for 2019! This is our second year working with the grant & we have decided to share our knowledge and experience of working with Small Grant Scheme team & successful applicants who bought Moocall products.

Find out more from our customer Nick Oliver

“We bought the Moocall HEAT system after having a very positive experiences with Moocall Calving Sensors.
"The bonus of receiving a 40% grant through countryside productivity scheme may have made it more affordable, but really it would have been a good investment regardless.
"The collars have helped us make more use of AI with a teaser, but also improved use of stock bulls.
"It helped us keep track on the status of cows and ensure bulls are working correctly.
"When used alongside the app a very useful record of herd activity can be built up.”
