About Dyneval

Dyneval is a fast-growing start-up with exciting ambitions to revolutionise dairy farming by becoming the expert choice for semen analysis. Their product - Dynescan - can be used by anyone, anywhere. It aims to improve the sustainability of livestock reproduction artificial intelligence technology for artificial insemination (AI4AI) which can be adapted to a range of species and challenges. With farm conception rates falling and a lack of quality control standards across the industry, Dynescan is an easy-to-use, automated and portable instrument that solves these problems and is becoming the gold-standard in semen assessment. By improving conception rates on farms, Dyneval are returning more profit to farmers and helping to create more sustainable approaches to farming by lowering the carbon footprint.

With an incredibly passionate team of experts, superb investment backing and an incredible product offering it is an exciting time to join Team Dyneval and help farmers in the race to Net Zero.
