FarmTech for data-driven livestock health monitoring

Farmelody is a platform designed to reverse the growing antimicrobial resistance that threatens humanity. It aggregates, manages and distributes animal farming data coming from multiple sources, thus enabling feed, tech and pharmaceutic suppliers to find new correlations between animal health and a variety of external factors. The core element of Farmelody is the recommendation system, through which farmers are matched with products and services that they need the most, as well as being a community platform where farmers seek and give advice.
