Hear more about the Livestock information Service in our series of short videos and infographics, starting with an introduction from our Managing Director,  Simon Hall:

The demo below shows the early stages of development of our online Livestock Information Service.
We continue to work closely with livestock keepers and other users to refine both the functionality and the look and feel of the service, to make it as intuitive and simple as possible. If you are a livestock farmer, small holder, abattoir administrator or haulier or work in markets and either have any comments about the demo or would like to take part in our user research, we want to hear from you. You can give as much or as little of your time as you can afford, opt in or out at any time. If you would like to get involved, please email to find out more email


Livestock Information Service back office “absolutely perfect” 

“Everything that has been presented today has been designed with me and my team in mind… So far, as we are now, it is absolutely perfect.”

This was the feedback that Mike Mahoney, Customer Experience Agent, at Capita, gave when he saw a recent demonstration of the LIS back office. He went on to say that

“This system that your team are developing,  is what we should have had in the first place; everything that we need is being catered for in this new system. There’s no stone left unturned when it comes to our requirements. And at the same time there’s no stone left unturned when it comes to the requirements of Defra etc. as well.”

Please note: These are Mike’s own personal views, not those of any organisation. You can listen to Mike’s views below:
