EIO Diagnostics was started when a local dairy farmer decided to find a better tool to monitor udder health to reduce mastitis infections in his herd. He called a friend, and combining their expertise in software, engineering and technology development, the two built the first prototype using a thermal sensor to detect changes in the udder.
By helping solve a problem for one farmer, we have found a way to help many.
Our team is dedicated to providing practical tools for farmers at all scales of production to improve the health of their animals. The FirstLook Mastitis system for installs seamlessly into high-throughput rotary dairy parlors, and a handheld version is being developed to help smallholder dairy farmers in Africa and Asia, providing the first advanced diagnostic tool for farmers at that scale.
What started in a small dairy has since developed into a system that works as well for one animal as it does for 10,000. Our prototypes have been tested in commercial dairies with robotic milking stalls, parallel parlors and large rotaries.
