Meet 10 Start-Ups Revolutionizing Welfare and Sustainability in Beef, Poultry and Dairy Production

10 innovators will present their breakthrough innovative technologies at this year’s Animal AgTech Innovation Summit in San Francisco on March 21.

The featured start-ups are tackling key challenges within livestock, poultry and dairy with transformative solutions such as creating novel seaweed feed additives, preventative health solutions, and monitoring supply chain optimization through artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Known globally for its focus on innovation, animal health, nutrition and precision farming, the Animal AgTech summit program aims to advance opportunities and partnerships for start-ups as they raise their profile and connect with potential investors and partners.

Meet 10 companies taking the stage during the Start-Up Pitching Session and showcasing solutions in the exhibition:

AudioT (USA): AudioT applies acoustics and machine learning to analyze vocalizations for evidence-based animal welfare and performance enhancement goals. If you know how to listen, chickens can tell you a lot about their mental state, their health status, and their environment.

Bialtec (Colombia) offers a portfolio of biotechnological products for animal nutrition, improving production performance and quality of life by advancing intestinal health and composition. Bialtec employs biotechnology, microbiology, metagenomics and microencapsulation to design and produce the next generation of antibiotic-free Animal Growth Promoters (AGPs).

Distynct (USA) allows unlimited devices to be connected on farms and consolidates information in its software platform to inform team decisions and daily activities. The company will build its 2022 momentum across five of the top 10 swine systems in the USA as it looks to solve more enterprise-wide issues of informed decision-making, data integration, improved animal welfare and brand risk mitigation.

FeedFlo (Canada) provides the animal agriculture industry with real-time, actionable data on the feed flowing through barns. Its innovative patent-pending sensor and predictive software technology reduces feed costs, increases operational efficiency, and improves animal health. FeedFlo is creating the barn of the future and a better food system.

EIO Diagnostics (USA) combines advanced imaging and machine learning to provide real-time detection of mastitis without touching the milk or the cow. This is an ideal solution for farmers looking to increase automation to reduce labor and costs associated with mastitis detection, while improving milk quality. It is easy to install and integrates with existing herd management solutions.

JaguzaTech (Uganda) uses drones, sensors, data science and machine learning to improve core aspects of farm operations to become more efficient, productive and sustainable. Its comprehensive platform encompasses livestock monitoring, disease detection, information dissemination, a one-stop online vet doctor and marketplace for livestock, equipment and drugs, amongst other farm necessities. Jaguza makes it easy for a modern-day livestock farmer to work remotely, conveniently, and reliably.

Marble Technologies (USA) creates intelligent technologies to automate labor-intensive, repetitive, and difficult processing tasks across the food supply chain, starting in the beef and pork industry. It utilizes artificial intelligence, computer vision, robotics, and control system technologies to deliver the next generation of automation to the meat supply chain.

MyAniml (USA) uses patent pending AI to analyze a picture of a cow’s face and muzzle to predict diseases. It provides a notification 2 days early before an owner can visibly tell. This not only saves money in reduced treatment costs, spreading of disease, and deaths but also increases revenue.

Psigryph (Canada) is developing livestock feed additives with greatly enhanced absorption (reducing feed inputs, nitrate greenhouse gas emissions, and environmental pollution from phosphorus). Psigryph achieves this through Nanopect, a food technology that enables highly efficient oral delivery of biologically active molecules like nutrients, pharmaceuticals and biopesticides.

Symbrosia (USA) has developed a novel seaweed feed additive from the red seaweed Asparagopsis taxiformis that reduces livestock methane emissions by 90%. With a tech-first approach to cultivation, distribution, and impact measurement, Symbrosia is bringing its feed additive to market at scale to create the world’s most sustainable beef and dairy.

The Animal AgTech Innovation Summit in San Francisco on March 21 will bring together 400+ of the world’s leading animal health and nutrition providers, producers, tech pioneers, entrepreneurs, and investors for a high-energy day of 1-1 meetings, panel sessions, roundtable discussions, a Breakfast Briefing and a networking drinks reception.
