Craig Piggott

Chief Executive, Halter

Innovative agri-tech helps NZ farmers to produce better quality products, and Craig Piggott has changed the game. Halter has designed and produced a GPS-enabled, solar-powered cow collar that uses sound stimuli to manage cow health and movement. Halter links tablets and Smartphones allowing farmers to direct individual cow or whole herd movements, while also monitoring individual cow health, and alerts farmers to any concerns. Winner of the Innovation Systems and Performance Improvement Award at the 2017 NZ Innovation Awards, and with Peter Beck as an investor and mentor, Craig and Halter are ones to watch.
