Fenceless Farming with Halter's Craig Piggott & Rocket Lab's Peter Beck Wild Hearts

    • Entrepreneurship

Halter is a fenceless farming startup. They're creating mind control technology for cows. An engineer by trade and dairy farmer by birth, Halter CEO Craig Piggot is familiar with the relentless demands of farming.

"The day in the life of a farmer is you're up at 4:30am every morning, even on Christmas morning, nothing waits for you."

That's about to change. Halter has developed an IoT wearable collar that can direct and move cows from any location on Earth. In today's episode, you'll hear from Craig on the future of farming and creating a culture of radical honesty, and from investor and Rocket Lab founder Peter Beck on the biggest mistakes NZ entrepreneurs make, and what convinced him to invest in Halter.

Episode interviewees: Craig Piggot, CEO of Halter and Peter Beck, investor and founder of Rocket Lab.

Key topics covered:

•How to create a culture of radical honesty
•The future of farming
•Why a bottom-up hierarchy allows you to move faster

The best of Craig Piggot:

•"Instead of thinking heaps about it, just got out there and do it. The tools humans have are so powerful - you can build, test and iterate pretty much anything."
•"Our vision is to unlock the connection between humans and animals for a better world."
•"Things unsaid are as bad as lying."
•"We want to spend just as much time designing the culture as we do our product."

The best of Peter Beck:

•"You don't create big things on Monday to Friday, eight to five, it just does not happen."
•"The biggest mistake NZ entrepreneurs make is claiming their idea is world-class without actually going into the world to test whether it's world-class."
•"There's more cows on the planet than people."
•"Your company is not a logo or brand, it is 100% who you hire."
