CowTribe Africa Keeping animals healthy
Veterinary service hailed via a farmer’s phone, delivered on demand at his doorstep.
If a farmer’s cow, sheep or goat is sick, he doesn’t want to wait for several days to see for a veterinarian to come. He calls our hotline and send a vet doctor his way within 24 hours or less. We provide access to the national network of over 207 private and public veterinarians across Ghana. But we do more than just send vets to farmers. We also send SMS alerts to our farmers with information on disease outbreaks and offering practical advice to farmers. The CowTribe platform was launched in April 2016 after a successful completion of a 12-month pilot. There are currently over 25,000 farmers from 97 communities subscribing to use the services on the CowTribe platform.
