Bringing IMAGENOMICS™ to Precision Livestock Farming

About Alpha Phenomics

Who are we?

Alpha Phenomics is an Alberta based technology company whose single focus is to improve the efficiency of animal protein production.

Through the use of innovative camera technology, we will disrupt the precision livestock sector; ensuring that our customers produce more animal protein from less.

The technology is practical, easy to use, and applicable to all animal protein producers irrespective of whether they produce milk, beef, pork, eggs, or poultry.

Alpha Phenomics will work to make our farming and ranching partners more profitable by adapting our technology to help them monitor their animals 24/7.

We will become the stockperson’s eyes, ears, and early warning system through our IMAGENOMICS™ operating system.

Alpha Phenomics: Bringing IMAGENOMICS™ to Precision Livestock Farming.

We seek to provide solutions through disruptive, data-driven technology that will lead to optimal animal protein production.  The goal is to allow milk, egg, and meat production through ethical means, with highly sustainable integrity, welfare, and a reduced carbon footprint.

How will Alpha Phenomics help animal protein producers?

Alpha Phenomics is the convergence of disruptive technologies developed by Biondi Engineering and Animal Inframetics.  These market leading imaging hardware are capable of capturing 3D, 4D, infra-red, microwave, and thermal data images through multi-spectral camera technology.  Images of livestock are collected 24/7 and in real-time through Biondi camera technology into an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform created by the engineering team of Alpha Phenomics.  They are then tightly compressed, again with patented technology, to be sent to a data cloud for measurement and evaluation.  Resulting data is then processed through complex analytic algorithms and the ERP deep learning system to provide real-time interpretation.  A subscription portal enables bespoke, pro-active solutions to be purchased by customers across sectors that include, but are not limited to: agriculture, aquaculture, horticulture, and veterinary science. 

In agriculture, using this technology to enable automated phenotyping will allow livestock farmers to radically improve in-time management decisions with precision and efficiency.  Examples include: genetic evaluations, health monitoring, feed conversion efficiency, diagnosis of the estrus cycle, biometric assessment of individuals or groups, live animal carcass prediction, carcass component evaluation, and high levels of traceability without the use of RFID tags or other more expensive technologies.  These are the traits and challenges being demanded by the market and which are now enabled by Alpha Phenomics solutions.  The sophistication and affordability of the hardware, combined with the depth, precision, and speed of the analytics, create this disruptive opportunity that is supported by hundreds of peer reviewed research trials proving efficacy and a high degree of value to the livestock farmer, processor and veterinarian.

Competitive Advantages

The technology Alpha Phenomics has developed enables producers to measure and value their animals non-invasively.  They are able to use the biometric data collected to make informed decisions that will improve livestock welfare while maintaining high levels of protein production.  The technology provides a real-time assessment of weight, weight change over time, genetic potential of a phenotype, muscle mass index, body composition, carcass composition, indication of thermal efficiency, and more. 

The hardware and software products have been thoroughly tested and validated in the bovine, porcine, and equine markets with a number of active research facilities and high profile, high visibility customers through pre-pay contracted transactions or application licenses. 

Through the sale of hardware and annual license fees, Alpha Phenomics will maximize the commercial return of this project.  Users will be able to pre-pay for a number of ‘clicks’ that capture data and consequently create a bespoke package of information to address their needs.

Alpha Phenomics owns significant Intellectual Property and a substantial list of patents related to 2D/3D/4D image capture for hardware and software.

Our Impact on Your Business

The software provides users with real-time data that enables them to more accurately predict outcomes and optimize their processes.  Users can make decisions on elements such as nutrition programs or the environment around livestock in order to maximize the kilograms of milk, meat, and egg protein produced and maximize lean tissue growth.  The data can also serve as an early warning system through the use of metabolic surveillance for the prediction of disease and viral or bacterial infections.
