About Distynct

Distynct enables precision livestock farming and monitoring of swine facilities through single-source, reliable, and cost-effective connectivity.

Nearly all of the swine facilities in the USA lack reliable network connectivity. Distynct delivers connectivity and the ability to ask important questions of the facility via state of the art sensor technology.

A consistent complaint across large swine production systems is the inability to proactively manage two of their most valuable assets, their team of people and their pigs. The lack of visibility to even basic barn conditions such as temperature, humidity, water consumption, manure pit levels, feed availability, and even worker presence create ambiguity, uncertainty, and ultimately requires the enterprise to continuously respond to urgent and important events vs. proactively managing.  Our innovative solutions bring reliable connectivity to rural swine facilities and establishes a foundation to connect devices, collect data, and turn that data into actionable insights for the enterprise. Through our online and mobile dashboard, Distynct helps to direct traffic of the swine enterprise team and ultimately establish a benchmark of data across the system for process improvement and identification of variable cost outliers.
