Seth Daup and Brooke Bode are both from Western Nebraska and grew up with their communities largely supported by hardworking farmers and ranchers. With this in common, they set out to start Cattle Kettle in hopes of streamlining work for these farmers and ranchers to allow the farmers and ranchers to have more time to spend with their families, friends, and communities.
What is Cattle Kettle?
Cattle Kettle is a livestock management system centered around cattle tanks. Their product works to track tank metrics in real-time and allows for the remote-control automation of the tank through their app and website. With this automation, ranchers will save countless hours and dollars that they would originally spend driving out, checking, and fixing their tanks.
Right now, Cattle Kettle is working on prototyping their product. Throughout the summer, they hope to refine their product and are working to be ready for a full launch this coming fall.
The Future of Cattle Kettle
Seth and Brooke have big dreams for Cattle Kettle and have been putting in the work to get there. They hope that they can become a leader in the livestock management space through innovative technology that can be implemented in a simple fashion. They strive to give farmers and ranchers more than just a solution to a problem. They want to give farmers valuable moments with loved ones that would have otherwise been spent working or checking on their tanks.
