Our Company


The concept for our company was based simply on the idea that dairies needed better processes. After seeing other herd management solutions available, founder Dr. David Cook wanted to create software for growing dairies that needed a more robust and intuitive solution for data and employees. David began working with his neighbors’ dairies. He spent thousands of hours working alongside dairy workers observing how they got work done. After several versions of the software, BoviSync began adding customers in 2014. The company has since grown to 20 employees.

BoviSync is the only herd management solutions provider that uncovers and resolves often unrealized dairy farm management challenges and solves them by streamlining and simplifying daily processes and coordinating teams for more efficient and profitable operation.

BoviSync is an independent employee-owned company focused on providing solutions to livestock producers across the world, primarily through software.
