Raised on a dairy farm, Daniel Badiou developed a remarkable knowledge of agricultural machinery and animal farming from an early age. He continuously strived to learn more about the mechanical operation of agricultural machinery, finding solutions for problems and designing his own multi-purpose machines.
Daniel designed, developed and implemented an autonomous poultry tractor. He tested it on his own poultry farm to better understand the needs of chicken farming and adapt his future machines.
Ukkö Robotics was launched in September 2016 with the goal of using technology to transform the traditional barn, making pasture-based farming more accessible. Partnering with mechanical engineer, Katrina Jean-Laflamme, Ukkö specializes in manufacturing an all-in-one autonomous poultry tractor that falls under the company’s Rova Series.
Rova is providing farmers (and aspiring farmers) around the globe with never before seen flexibility, allowing individuals to raise their animals on pasture while having the same benefits as most high tech barns.
