Name: Toby Mottram
TOBY Mottram describes himself as a serial inventor of dairy technologies.
In 2007, he founded eCow Developments to commercialise the rumen bolus.
His latest development, Milkalyser, aims to revolutionise dairy cow fertility management by automating the sampling and analysis for progesterone in a system for any parlour with autoID.
Mt Mottram explains the single prototype currently being built will be tested on a robotic milker this year, but he is looking for money to develop the business and collaborations with software and milking companies.
