Connecting to the BCMS (UK)

Easily connect your BCMS account with AgriWebb

Updated over a week ago

Connecting your BCMS account with AgriWebb is an important first step for livestock farmers in the United Kingdom. Once connected you can import your animals directly into your AgriWebb account.

What are the correct credentials?

First and foremost, you will need to ensure you have the correct account credentials. Please note that these are not the same credentials that you use for CTS Online.

Correct Credentials:

CTS Web Services username

CTS Web Services password

What do they look like?

Username - 9 characters, e.g. 258-174-110

Password - 7 characters, e.g. 5LG3LN7

They are specific to partners such as AgriWebb, and can only be obtained via request from the BCMS. If you do not have these credentials for your farm, you will need to request these from the BCMS directly.

Connecting to AgriWebb

Once obtained, log on to the AgriWebb Web App and select the Account followed by Government Connections

If no identifier is set, it is possible to set the identifier at this point, which will then make the connection available to select.

Press Connect and the connection details will be tested and established.

Importing Animals

If you have connected with BCMS, and there are currently animals on the farm, there will be a prompt to import animals into your AgriWebb account.
