The animal microbiome.
The microbiome is critical to animal health and nutrition. Using the microbiome, we can reduce waste and increase the productivity and sustainability of our food system.
We leverage the latest in genomics, transcriptomics, and metabalomics to decipher and optimize the microbiome. Our patent pending platform achieves untapped efficiencies.
Our platform can address some of the greatest challenges in animal husbandry.
Reduce methane and other greenhouse gasses.
The cow microbiome emits millions of tonnes of methane annually. Using our platform, we identify and control methane emissions for improved feed efficiency and productivity.
Livestock are the majority consumer of antibiotics. Our platform offers a different way to improve livestock productivity without the use of dangerous antibiotics or chemicals.
Reduce disease incidence
and improve health.
The microbiome is the first line of defense against microbial pathogens. We are developing a poultry therapeutic in conjunction with a major government department.
