Problem

  • No existing tool to build feeding strategies for cows
  • Without proper analysis farms may spend beyond budget to increase milk production
  • Risk of feeding diets deficient or excessive in certain nutrients
  • Analysis of feed as root cause not possible when milk production drops
  • No way for client to share their years of experience and research outcomes with farm owners
  • No way for farm owners to confidently choose the right feed for their dairy cattle
  • Web based tools of no use in locations with zero to no internet connectivity
  • Proprietary software too expensive for small farm owners
