Web Screens live
Farmers can now record weights and scales details on the ICBF website and the ICBF Web App for the 2022 Beef sector efficiency schemes.
BEEP-S 2022 details can be accessed through your ICBF account by going to > Services > BEEP-S. Similarly Dairy Beef Calf screens can be accessed by going to > Services > Dairy Beef Calf Programme.
Weights and details of owned or borrowed/hired scales can be recorded here. Unlike previous years owned scales will not have to be re-registered or will not receive a new scales registration number, so herds who own a scales and have it registered in previous years have no action to complete. The process of borrowing remains the same as previous years.
ICBF’s Weight Recording App will be updated shortly to display the 2022 scheme animals. Recording forms will also be available to request in the coming weeks for herds who need to complete weights through the postal system. Paper forms will be available by calling 0238832883 forms can only be issued once DAFM have confirmed your herd is in the scheme and you have a valid scales linked to your herd.
