OPTIFarm is the world’s only real-time, remote, 24/7 optimisation service for livestock farms. The company argues that current livestock production facilities lack a systematic way of monitoring production, animal welfare or staff training needs on a continuous basis. It stresses that its model combines the knowledge of trained experts with raw data gathered from livestock consisting of metrics like feed consumption, feed availability, water, temperature, humidity, and air pressure. The company combines the aforementioned data with advanced software and data analytics offering livestock businesses 24/7 monitoring providing full status reports every 90 minutes. OPTIFarm asserts that this enables farms to optimise feed, water and climate to provide the best conditions for their livestock. OPTIFarm’s service is currently generating c. £25,000 per month in recurring revenues from poultry clients in 14 countries across the globe. The company stated it will use the investment received to prepare the business for rapid scale-up growth over the next five years.
