Exotic diseases

We created Betty as a tool to help farmers manage their herds better. Now I know some of you have been farming since I was born, but I think we can all agree that the dairy industry now is vastly different from what is was back then- and even different from just 5 years ago!

One thing that’s hit the news recently is the detection of a new, exotic disease- Mycoplasma bovis.

This is a disease that we’ve never had before (in NZ). Our team are working on implementing some new neural networks into Betty’s system which should help pick up strange patterns in diseases detection, and hopefully provide guidance on when you should call your vet or MPI if you suspect it!

We’ve pushed the algorithms update to our TestFlight members- and getting good feedback from our farmers which is a big help to improve the Betty engine 🙂

For more information on the disease be sure to check out Dairy NZ’s resource here.
