Milkalyser is an automated system based on wirelessly connected IoT sensors to measure hormones in milk during milking. This will revolutionise the fertility management of dairy cows. The product is in Alpha testing this year and will be ready for Beta customers in 2019.
Exeter is at the heart of our industry, with a million dairy cows close by. It has a world class University, the Met Office and Exeter Science Park which provides a fantastic space for start-ups and growing SMEs. It is also an excellent place to live, with beautiful countryside and the best rugby team in England!
National & International focus
Developing our product requires top class research facilities, such as those of the new Agri EPI-Centre. Our collaborators in the region provide the veterinary capability, bio-sensor expertise, and engineering design.
With our established partner company eCow, we have contacts all over the world, and collaboration from our Italian distributors means we have a strong international presence. Thanks to investment from the Mercia Technology Fund and InnovateUK, as well as mentoring from SETsquared Exeter, we have been able to expand our offering and grow the company. We also have a technical advisory group of outside experts who ensure our feet stay on the ground!
