David Balinsky turned his idea to use hovering drones to detect possible bovine illness into a UGA I-Corps project and now looks to bring his “Shepherd Drones” to market.

Before moving on to the I-Corps program, David Balinsky (DVM ’18) first brought his “Shepherd Drone” idea to a College of Veterinary Medicine hackathon last spring that was sponsored by Boehringer Ingelheim, one of the world’s largest animal health companies, demonstrating the synergy that helps fuel UGA’s innovation and industry engagement programs.
