fodjan is an algorithm based and connected web platform, where farmers and suppliers can manage the feeding of livestock. We connect services and hardware around feeding (Labs, feed mixer, milking robots etc.) and make the data useable through our digital solutions.


Problem:
 Most of the farmers (about 90 %) don’t have to knowledge to manage the feeding by themselves
 Almost every manufacture in agriculture has a different way to provide data
 Today data around feeding is being collected but not useable connected
 In the agricultural livestock sector, the feed costs make up more than 50% of the total costs.


Solution:
 Online platform + App for easy access and handling for farmers and consultants
 Virtual feed assistant will bring the needed knowledge to the farmer
 Interfaces to the manufacture data to bring it to the platform
 Make this data useable at the right positions
 App as daily companion – update data, feeding process, documentation

 Make this data useable at the right positions
 App as daily companion – update data, feeding process, documentation
 Immediately benefit for the farmer by giving his data
 Put farmer in the position to handle the biggest cost block on the farm by himself
 Providing a virtual feed assistant trained by the data of many farmers
Business model:
 Freemium Subscription model (SaaS)
 Collect data around feeding => Start building models on it
 microtargeting – i.e. sponsored ration of forage dealers
 Commission on traded products (option)
 International scalable and expandable business model


Technology/ IP:
 The algorithm as a technological and central element is an in-house development and is based on different optimization algorithms and vector algebra. It scans the solution space – consisting of 100 dimensions – and gives with about 300 solutions a representative overview of all available feed combinations. Using filters the solution set can be restricted iteratively.
 Virtual feed assistant – access to an in house developed knowledge database of generally applicable recommendation considering feeding (special XPS-System)
 Big Data – Infrastructure and first Usecase has been implemented, first analysis for users will be available Q1 2018
