Chordata was founded in 2018 to bring together specialists in biosensor and tracking technology; data science, connectivity and machine learning; needs analysis, user experience design and impact evaluation to develop transformational solutions to improve animal health and wellbeing.

We work with veterinary scientists, farmers, producers, pharma, policy-makers and animal feed manufacturers to co-develop effective technology.

Chordata Precision Livestock Farming is a transformational system to provide new information and insights into the metabolic health status of dairy cows – to increase wellbeing, reduce anti-microbial resistance (AMR) and support sustainability goals. Our system combines a biosensor capable of detecting blood-based and ambient biomarkers; a wearable for movement, activity and behaviour, a cloud analytics platform to create insights and simple to use applications for farm managers and vets. The system can integrate with farm management systems and ingest data from other wearable technologies already deployed. Chordata PLF is currently in development and will be ready for market in 2021.
