Elevating Animal Well-Being Through Innovation and Trust

Transforming the Global Food Supply for Good

TARGAN is a unique blend of forward-thinking scientific and engineering experts changing the future of animal health through biological know-how and technology. We focus on integrating the right areas of expertise to create groundbreaking devices that will improve speed, accuracy, and animal welfare.


We went from an Idea to an Impactful Solution

We’ve grown from humble roots to an innovative Animal AgTech systems company focused on sustainability and animal welfare. Sometimes the best ideas start on the back of a napkin, and our story begins there, yet we now deploy a robust set of solutions for commercial food producers. TARGAN was founded in 2015 by an experienced team of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs.

Our global headquarters is based in the heart of the Research Triangle Park area of Raleigh, North Carolina, where we support a healthier, more sustainable food supply by engineering precise, effective, and safe technologies.

Throughout our continued growth, our values and mission have remained constant.
