Libby Martin, a fourth-year student in the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine, was recently awarded the Inaugural Lieutenant Governor’s Women of Achievement Award. Martin will be recognized in a reception at the Capitol on March 24.

Martin founded Calving Technologies, LLC, a precision agriculture and IoT (Internet of Things) startup, providing sensory hardware and software predictive technology for farmers to track the health of their beef cows within a month of expected calving. She won the University of Missouri System’s first Entrepreneur Quest Student Accelerator competition and more than $40,000 to continue her work on modernizing and revolutionizing how birthing cows are tracked and cared for.

Aside from Calving Technologies, Martin is a full-time student, and she serves as the College of Veterinary Medicine class of 2022 vice president, a student ambassador for the NAVE Veterinary Group of Las Vegas, NV, the vice president of marketing for the Veterinary Business Management Association, and a member of the American Association of Bovine Practitioners.
