Connecterra is an agtech startup that trains Artificial Intelligence to learn how to farm in order to empower farmers of all sizes to increase the productivity of their farms, while reducing the impact of farming on the planet.
The company’s aim is to connect the farm and the total dairy value chain. To do that, it has developed ‘Ida’, a predictive intelligent AI platform that is active in finding solutions regarding regenerative, sustainable agricultural practices. Ida is not only trained to deliver accurate predictive insights but can manage inputs, optimise processes, and even integrate machinery, such as automatic gates and milking robots.
Connecterra combines proprietary sensor hardware, animal data, third-party enterprise data, and machine-learning algorithms in Ida. The solution enables users to track the management of individual cows and delivers information such as milk yield, management of antibiotic plans and biological cycles.
