Mobile App Saves Livestock

Date: 31/07/2015

A mobile app developed by a company founded by a University of Strathclyde graduate has made a vast difference to the health and welfare of livestock in Africa.

An independent clinical study by researchers in Canada found that the  VetAfrica app, produced by IT company Cojengo, was effective in dealing with 80% of cattle diseases commonly found in rural Ethiopia. There was also a 70% level of agreement in diagnosis between the app and vets examining the animals.

VetAfrica enables vets, animal health workers and rural farmers to diagnose livestock illness quickly and accurately and identify which drugs are most effective to treat disease.
