In the past 40 years, the consumption of rations has decreased year by year, the consumption of Food of Animal Origin has continued to grow rapidly in China, and the per capita consumption of dairy products has increased particularly. Under the high demand of consumers in China, the scale of dairy farms is getting larger and more concentrated than before, and ten thousand cattle farms are constantly emerging. The number of Dairy Cattle in stock in the largest single dairy farm served by EYIMU S&T reached 40,000. The real challenge faced by these large-scale and intensive farms is that it is difficult for them to use traditional methods to manage them. Digital intelligent farms are the inevitable direction of future development.
EYIMU S&T (Beijing) Co. Ltd is a Professional Data Intelligence Farm Solution provider that has developed a precision dairy farming SaaS solution that accelerates digital transformation. The DBI(Dairy Business Index)initiated by EYIMU S&T which is prime to set a new standard in the industry.
“Our goal is to build a one-stop service platform for smart farms and to enable the farms to be more profitable and sustainable” said Ma Zhifen, Founder & CEO of EYIMU S&T (Beijing) Co. Ltd.
More and more intelligent equipment and sensors are used, such as automatic milk yield measurement, accurate feeding, cow behavior monitoring, environmental temperature, and humidity monitoring, etc. Moreover, the precision of many sensors is very high. Compared with the handwritten data of traditional farm workers, using sensors can obtain more and more accurate data in a more efficient way. The collected data will be uploaded to "YIMUCloud" in real time, and "YIMUCloud" will analyze the data based on the mechanism model and empirical model, and convert it into very useful information, which plays an increasingly important role in assisting the daily production management of the farm. For example, through analysis, we can know which cows in the dairy need treatment, and we can quickly locate the cow. This information will be transmitted to the work cell phone or tablet computer of the farm staff, so they can start their daily work like looking at the schedule. For example, the cows in a certain field need to be processed at the same time. The DSmart Barn Work Navigator provided by EYIMU will greatly improve the work efficiency of the production personnel, just like the navigation we use for driving. Sensors will also be used to monitor the feeding, behavior, and milking of cows. Finally, we can collect more and more real production data of farms.
Commercial farms pay more attention to how to continuously improve profitability. "YIMUCloud" is like the smart brain of the farm, which automatically monitors and collects as much data as possible for analysis. Based on this, we put forward DBI (Dairy Business Index) to help farmers make scientific decisions through data intelligent analysis to drive the farm to operate better. We will also analyze the collected data and sort out the service industry. Starting from 2020, we will publish a version of the current situation of key production performance of large-scale dairy farms in China every year, which is very helpful to the farm. Many senior managers of companies use this data to help them continuously improve their performance
Our goal is to build a one-stop service platform for smart farms to enable the farms to be more profitable and sustainable, and enable the creation of Agro-grassland think tank system
From the intelligent analysis and decision-making system of DBI farm data, we can see the analysis of various aspects such as feeding, breeding, milk production, health, genetics, and herd structure. All these data will be used to analyze and obtain the DBI index. The higher the DBI index, the higher the sustainable profitability of the farm. Try our best to improve the breeding efficiency and increase the total output of milk without increasing the stock. The scientific analysis of data will be more intuitively displayed to the owners or decision makers in the form of a dashboard. The dashboard has the most critical data, which can help them make correct decisions. Among many customers we serve, there will be a large screen in the office of the decision-making level, and the key data of the farm will be displayed on the screen.
Now more and more farms are using this solution to free their hands. They will use more automation equipment and this data intelligence solution to truly improve their efficiency and profitability. At the same time, EYIMU is using more computer vision technology, using cameras and AI for BCS (Body Condition Monitoring). This technology can replace the daily physical condition scoring work of workers. On the one hand, it improves the labor efficiency. From the perspective of feeding, the mixing and feeding become more accurate and the feed cost is saved. In addition, it also helps the farm to continuously improve the breeding efficiency. Finally, we will see the improvement of milk production and breeding efficiency. Farm can make more profits and be more sustainable. If we promote this solution to the whole country, it will create a value of more than 10 billion RMB every year. At the same time, we also see overseas opportunities. We are cooperating with our business partners in the USA market and successfully enter the North American market. As of January 25, 2022, the number of cows served by YIMUCloud was over 1 million, and it is expected to exceed 1.2 million by the end of 2022. It is believed that more and more dairy cattle and other ruminant livestock farms will be served by EYIMU in the future.
