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.

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.
