PigBrother products

The business idea of PigBrother first came up in 2016. The source of inspiration was an acquainted pig farmer who let us know that he had difficulties with accurately estimating the weight of the livestock daily. Some relevant market research revealed that this lack of information is not a unique challenge but a pressing global problem that the whole pig farming sector has been facing. We believed that creating an IoT instrument and a software solution by combining our IT experience and expertise to provide modern and effective support to farmers when it comes to accurate and up-to-date information.

Working along the idea of PigBrother, we developed an innovative pig monitoring system for the pig fattening industry. The software analyzes the information by machine learning technology and provides a decision support system to users.

Now we are constantly working together with experts on further improvements for many of our products that were developed especially for our customers and potential pig farm partners.
