Meet the young entrepreneur at the helm of Halter, the NZ agritech company backed by Peter Beck and Peter Thiel
A young man from Morrinsville is making waves in the agritech world with the award-winning idea behind his company, Halter. The solar-powered, GPS-tracked collar self-herds cows while gathering data about their behaviour, emotions and health and sending it to the farmer’s phone. It recently just raised US$8 million in capital in Silicon Valley from Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, and Rocketlab’s Peter Beck has dubbed it a ‘billion-dollar idea’. Could this be the future of farming?
