A livestock company based in the United Kingdom will soon expand to include the American market, thanks in part to participation in the Pearse Lyons Accelerator, run by Alltech and Dogpatch Labs. Breedr Co-Founder Claire Lewis was at ONE19 – The Alltech Ideas Conference in Lexington, Kentucky.
“Breedr is a livestock trading platform, but it’s slightly different to lots of other livestock trading platforms in that we trade based on data,” said Lewis. “So we bring together data on farm to predict optimum sale dates, weights and peak profit so farmers have better understanding of when to sell, and then they can, on our platform, look into contracts with processors.”
Lewis said Breedr is a farmer-centric organization that keeps the farmer at the heart of everything they do. She said the company wants to be known for handling necessary data responsibly and maintaining farmer trust.
