When and how did the idea originate?
Manuel, our CEO, grew up helping his father on his piglet farm where he often had to carry out one of the most exhausting tasks: counting animals. He grew up seeing his father working in the office every day taking care of bureaucratic issues instead of investing his time in the animals and their care. When he finished his studies, together with Timo and Yiyun, they decided to create a technological solution to help all farmers to automate their counts. And that's how corvitac and its Pig-Counter were born.
Our team is not only young and dynamic, but also contains members from very different professional, personal and cultural backgrounds, which ultimately enriches the interrelations within the company and helps us to grow personally and professionally, allowing us to continue to give our 100% to both our technology and our customers.
Corvitac's mission is to meet the needs of the livestock industry, helping farmers and employees to fully automate existing bureaucratic requirements. Our way of achieving this goal is through the use of camera systems that include our innovative image processing software.
This system allows the automatic counting of animals, thus facilitating the work of farmers and strengthening their efficiency and competitiveness. They therefore have more time for animal care and it is also feasible to minimise stress to the animals in all livestock processes, allowing entrepreneurs to focus on the development of a much more environmentally friendly animal husbandry. A positive development and improvement of transparency in the context of animal husbandry transfers to society a return of confidence in the livestock industry, also allowing all those involved to benefit from technological advances in modern livestock and agriculture.
The main vision for our company is based on the total automation of documentation in pig breeding and farming. We aim to develop products that benefit farmers, animals, the environment and society.
