Better Dairy

About This Project

Endometritis is a curable uterine infection that is highly prevalent in cow farms affecting approximately 30% of cows per year, with up to 70% incidence in some herds. A farm with just 1,500 cows and with a typical incidence rate of 30% has a loss of up to €146,000 a year due to the costs associated with endometritis. Current solutions are slow, expensive, require specialized personnel and have low reliability.

 

Oculyze offers Better Dairy, an automated image recognition tool leveraging a proprietary algorithm using a smartphone-based microscope and a sampling kit for the diagnosis of subclinical endometritis in cows. The diagnostic tool can be easily used by anyone without professional training. It does not require expensive equipment or lab testing, just a regular smartphone. Better Dairy makes laboratory testing an easy and affordable in-field task.
