My company MyAnIML uses AI to predict diseases in cattle for the owners who suffer from lost revenue and death of their cows.
Admitted to Techstars Kansas City program. Two angel investors committed. Starting trial at West Texas A&M. 3 hard commitments of 50,000 cows. 5 soft commitments of over 50,000 cows.
Cattle owners in particular Dairy farmers, feedlots, and backgrounder who own more than 150 heads.
Problem or Opportunity
Every year cattle industry loses over $200 billion dollars in disease treatment cost, deaths of cows, and revenue lost due to cows losing weight in diseases.
Solution (product or service)
My company MyAnIML has developed a patent pending solution that uses AI to analyze face and muzzles of a cow and predicts if the cow will have a particular disease based on how the muzzle changes and is seen in computer vision. We can provide early notification thus an owner can isolate the cow to treat early. This also stops the disease spread which lowers the overall cost and increases revenue.
No direct competitors but have few other companies using various methodology such as gait analysis, breath analysis, and temperature to determine if a cow is sick.
Advantages or differentiators
We are one step before these competitors as we are truly finding and predicting diseases before the symptoms come on. By the time a cow has stopped drinking or has a fever, it already is infected and sick. My competitors at that time providing info to the owners, we are providing the info before any of these symptoms arise. No one is looking at face and muzzle to identify and predict a disease. Our solution is patent pending also.

Money will be spent on
Automating AI and logistics and quick response of AI determination.
The risk would've been if we weren't able to create a predictive solution. The challenge would be to have masses get in it. We will win that battle one at a time. Also our advisors are from this industry and know many other ranchers. Their opinion value more than my facts.
