The Challenge DigiCow is Solving

Smallholder farmers in Africa face several challenges, including:

  • Lack of access to information and training

  • Climate change

DigiCow’s technologies are designed to help smallholder farmers overcome these challenges and improve their productivity and profitability.

For example, the DigiCow dairy app provides farmers access to training resources, real-time alerts, and a peer-to-peer learning platform.

This helps farmers stay informed about best practices and make better decisions about their farms.

DigiCow’s digital extension services also help farmers access expert information and training.

This is especially important for farmers in remote areas who may not have access to traditional extension services.
