EIO Diagnostics | Startup-In-Residence Highlight

Updated: May 7, 2023

EIO Diagnostics works to help dairy farmers detect and stop mastitis before it starts. Their UdderHealth Mastitis system allows them to use sensors and machines to detect signs of infection days before physical symptoms show through their udder or milk. Receiving results within seconds allows for a hassle-free, integrated system that works with the workflow of the farm. EIO Diagnostics is a Startup-In-Residence at The Combine, an AgTech startup program.

From their Farm to Your Barn

EIO Diagnostics started from a dairy farmer who decided it was time to find a better tool to monitor udder health and reduce mastitis infections in their herd. With a friend's help, they combined their experience in software engineering and technology development to create their first prototype. What started on a small dairy farm has developed into a system that works the same for one as it does for 10,000. Their team is dedicated to providing practical tools for farmers to improve the health of their animals.

The UdderHealth Mastitis System

Their UdderHealth Mastitis system is able to combine advanced imaging and machine learning to give you real-time detection of mastitis without even touching the milk or the cow. This allows farmers to reduce labor costs, eliminate human fatigue errors, reduce treatment times and antibiotic use, and protect milk quality. Additionally, their simple installation allows farmers of all production sizes to benefit from their technology.

Driven By Innovation

EIO Diagnostics is a small but mighty team driven by innovation and a passion for the dairy industry. CEO and Co-Founder Tamara Leigh has worn many hats, but EIO Diagnostics brings her lifelong passions of working with farmers, innovation, and livestock together into one.
