MimicTec is an AgTech startup looking at improving the productivity of poultry farming. Our physical infrastructure product improves the rearing of chicks on commercial farms to decrease the mortality rate and improve the feed conversion ratio of chickens. MimicTec has developed prototypes, with two initial working product tested with chickens in October 2016 and February 2017. We're now developing alpha versions on our product to be implemented on farms in collaboration with poultry farmers and engineers.
Our early trials suggested our rearing technology can:
- Improve the feed conversion ratio by 3.87%
- Improve weight gain variability by 25%
- Improve power utilisation by 30%
- Reduce negative behaviours in chickens
