Birds Eye Robotics was specifically designed at the request of poultry growers to reduce the labor demand and cost

Our Story

In early 2019, Scott Niewohner and his son, Lucas, set out to solve a problem for local poultry growers.  They quickly learned of the challenges growers face and recognized there must be a better way.  Soon after, with Scott’s mind for mechanical solutions, and Lucas’ software and robotics mind, they came up with the first version of what would later be known as the Birds Eye Robotics Caretaker.
