Dimitra Livestock Guru Platform Launches

March 31st, 2022

BELIZE CITY, BELIZE — Dimitra Incorporated, a global Agtech company on a mission to make its Dimitra Connected Farmer platform available to smallholder farmers globally, has officially launched Dimitra Livestock Guru. This platform contains specific modules focused on Breeding, Genetics, Feed Management, Livestock traceability, record management, export and performance management. Dimitra Livestock Guru collects information throughout the animal’s life cycle, compares it with data available from similar genetically-mapped animals, and applies Artificial Intelligence (AI) to suggest to farmers the best way to maximize results, avoid diseases, and improve reproductive productivity rates.

The Platform allows farmers to learn about which results each genetic cross will produce in advance. This information can include everything from the best financial benefit in the long term to which cross could result in calving complications or higher incidence of diseases.

Farmers can access information that alerts them when a cow should be in heat to shorten the calving interval and when an animal should be removed from the reproductive cycle due to low reproductive or productive efficiency. Dimitra Livestock Guru incorporates all the complex calculations of the most modern genetics technologies and provides farmers with simplified and actionable information.

Governments have the opportunity to have all their productive, reproductive, and health data available in real-time. They can use this data to improve their country’s herd with Artificial Intelligence and help fight hunger and poverty while boosting productivity and increasing GDP. By using Dimitra Livestock Guru, genetics companies will be able to help farmers make thebest decisions, based not only on the price of genetic technologies but also on the farmers’ long-term financial interest.

Dimitra’s Livestock Guru solves the following industry issues:

  1. More sustainable breeding through the selection of economically/genetically superior traits
  2. Track animals’ lifecycle traceability and secure storage of comprehensive breeding, production, and health records for each animal
  3. Improve a breeds genetics by assisting with advanced reproductive planning
  4. Reduce livestock disease burden by identifying animals more prone to disease and improve their health and, therefore, the welfare of consumers
  5. Reduce animal theft and smuggling and providing evidence for enforcement through DNA identification of cattle
  6. Increase revenues, access to international markets, and improve predictability on future profitability

By understanding the effect of external factors, such as weather, climate, water source, environment, and feed on an animal’s health, growth, and performance, Dimitra uses emerging technologies to provide insightful guidance for farmers, governments, and organizations to help increase yield, reduce cost, and mitigate risk.

Dimitra optimizes the selection process for dairy and beef cattle by aligning with breeders and farmers objectives. Breeders and farmers now have the opportunity to make sure their herd’s offspring are healthy and are breeding for important traits, whether economic or health-related.

Breeding objectives can be based on:

  • Traits of economic importance
  • Customer/market requirements
  • Herd production and reproduction targets
