Information between dierent actors in the livestock value chain is very limited thus leading to issues such as exploitation of farmers by middle men and the lack of essential information about the production of livestock, which would have otherwise increased productivity and in turn improve livelihoods.

This system will give farmers access to information with regards to the production of livestock as well as market information at a fairly aordable cost. This will play a very big role in improving the productivity of livestock.
