Arinifu: Developing technology to support poultry farmers
Through a GPA grant of $5000 in November 2017 Arinufu developed a “smart brooder” –this is a device monitors the temperature of a newborn chicks’ environment and reports any variance via an app to the farmer. This ensures optimal temperature for survival, increasing profits for poultry farmers. The organization notes that there are 1.6 million poultry farmers in Kenya and the mortality rate for chicks can be as high as 99% The smart brooder is a smart solution.
