At this year’s Global Ruminant Day event, held 4-6 June in Vienna, Austria, dsm-firmenich presented a new Digital Disruptor award for game-changing technologies within the dairy and beef sectors.

At the event, dsm-firmenich brought together over 200 global executives and experts from across the dairy and beef industries to address the most pressing issues ranging from health and reproductive challenges to feed cost optimisation, sustainability and promising new precision livestock farming technologies.

The 3 nominees for the Digital Disruptor award:

  • Labby, an artificial intelligence-enabled optical sensing for raw milk testing. 
  • FarmTrace, a platform that connects on-farm systems, robots and farm management solutions to provide actionable insights.

smaXtec won this year’s Digital Disruptor award, receiving the most votes from the Global Ruminant Days delegates.
