“Dr. Ptaschinski’s experience in the fields of animal health, farm biosecurity, and information technology is deep and we are thrilled to have her join the EveryPig team,” said Founder and CEO Chris Bomgaars. “As someone with abundant first-hand knowledge of the challenges pork producers face on a daily basis, she has her finger on the pulse of the industry and will help as EveryPig anticipates their needs and solves the problems that matter.”
Dr. Ptaschinski added: “Throughout my career, I have worked on several technology-driven solutions for animal health and production, and I can say that EveryPig‘s platform is novel and currently the only technology of its kind that is not just a concept but is a completely functional product ready for wide-scale implementation. EveryPig is a true industry innovator, and I’m thrilled to help the company advance its important mission of improving animal health and bringing healthier food to people’s tables.”
Earlier in January, EveryPig Founder and CEO Chris Bomgaars addressed top industry leaders at the 2020 Banff Pork Seminar in Banff, Alberta, Canada, where he spoke about how EveryPig’s AI-enabled technology helps pork producers succeed in today’s globalized marketplace. In the coming weeks, the company plans to expand its platform with a first-of-its-kind logistics module that will enable pork producers, farm directors and logistics managers to drastically improve their efficiency.
