The official launch of the first ever indigenous tech-based online livestock company held Tuesday, the 6th of November 2018, at the Sheba Event Centre, Lagos, drawing positive appraisals from a host of stakeholders in the Nigerian Livestock market who graced the occasion.

The purpose of this enterprise, according to its innovators, is to ease the flow of trading in livestock while at the same time guaranteeing a healthy supply of beef to the Nigerian consumers. It is also intended to provide a viable interface for livestock buyers, sellers, ranchers, livestock merchants, Veterinary professionals, Haulage/Logistics companies, as well as financial service providers, to enable commerce of livestock.

In her welcome address, the Chairman of Livestock247.com, Amina Oyagbola, stated that “Livestock247.com is an online platform that will enable investors, owners, and farmers of livestock to be readily matched with buyers and consumers of livestock anywhere in the country. By this, we have created a logistical value chain for the benefit of all stakeholders in this huge industry”.

In the same vein, the Chief Executive Officer of Livestock247.com, Ibrahim Maigari, reiterated that the company was borne out of the need to mitigate the spread of zoonotic diseases in the Nigerian Cattle/Beef market through the provision of fit-for slaughter & traceable livestock directly to your doorstep.

The CEO pointed out that Nigeria could not export beef legally due to lack of functional animal identification and traceability system as obtainable in other countries.  

With the introduction of Livestock247.com, merchants now have the advantage of listing livestock for sale to customers anywhere in Nigeria. Customers also have the opportunity to buy livestock that meets their specific requirements from the comfort of their homes.  

Speaking further, Maigari said, “The technology deployed on Livestock247.com is multi-dimensional and will impact development within the livestock sector, create more jobs and trigger growth of the economy. To enhance our customer experience we have built a Livestock247 app which is available for download on Google playstore & Apple Store.

For quality health service delivery to its clients, Livestock247.com has partnered with qualified Veterinary doctors who are certified by the Veterinary Council of Nigeria (VCN) and the Nigerian Institute of Animal Science (NIAS) to ensure that all animals undergo veterinary assessments to ensure fit-for slaughter livestock for customers.

Furthermore, livestock sold on the platform are traceable with biodegradable microchips ensuring that you get the exact livestock purchased, delivered directly to your requested location, effectively cutting out the hassles of dealing with middlemen.
