New website tracks updates on technology for cows

Progressive Dairy Editor Walt Cooley Published on 29 December 2020

Tech and cows are two of my passions. Earlier this year, I started a new website to track the comings and goings of tech companies and their products.

The site is called The Cow Tech Report. While this may not be of interest to all, I invite any who have curiosity for what’s coming next to check out the site.



The content of the site will lean into the future of tech for cows. It aims to help three audiences with its content:

1. Help dairy producers sort through available technologies to help them decide which ones solve a problem they have, make them more efficient and ultimately improve their profitability.

2. Help start-up companies connect with dairies who might be interested in their technology and promote the best offering they have to The Cow Tech Report’s producer-readers.

3. Help tech investors understand the cattle marketplace so they can make intelligent decisions related to their own promising technology.

What follows are summaries about cow tech news from the last quarter of the year.
