Amos Peterson, CEO of FarrPro is predicting rapid growth of his business n 2018. FarrPro, a member of the inaugural cohort of the Iowa AgriTech Accelerator program, is developing next generation piglet heating solutions to help reduce both mortality and energy costs in farrowing facilities.
Peterson told Radio Iowa FarrPro is just now beginning a pilot project, but he calls the preliminary data on his product “very encouraging.” He says the piglets “seem to really like” the enclosures.
According to the article, Peterson said fundraising will be critical over the next year as he hopes FarrPro units will eventually be used by swine operations around the world. “The launch throughout 2018 – we’re hoping to sell about 1,000 units to early test partners and 10,000 through other distribution methods,” Peterson said.
