About The Project

OptimaBreed is owned by three well-established AI organizations -WestGen, EastGen, and CIAQ. It is an industry leader in reproductive technologies and the most rapidly growing company in this market. OptimaBreed offers genetic solutions for dairy and meat farmers that boost animal immunity, lower disease, considerably improve the breeding process, and maximize profitability.

About The Project

Challenge

OptimaBreed outlined the needs and ambitious biotechnology goals which would create value for their clients and their pain points. The team created innovative software solutions that covered the requirements and eliminated business blockers:

  • Selection of traits with high heritability to decrease disease rate in dairy animals
  • Development of a novel approach to sire selection with a personalized formula that fits unique customer specification
  • Mating control
  • Monitoring herd performance based on on-farm data, synchronized nightly from farm management or milking parlor software
  • Devising a convenient method to collect genetic samples and access results easily, e.g., female genomic information
  • Devising a convenient method to collect genetic samples and access results easily, e.g., female genomic information

Solutions

To reach the goals outlined above, we designed four desktop solutions and a mobile app, which make genetic herd management convenient, effective and cost-efficient.
