Dairynomics is a tool designed for dairy advisors is available on http://www.dairynomicsapp.com and as an android app on google play store. The tool facilitates dairy farms to maintain a set of five records being daily farm activities, milk records, cow cards, feed and fodder record and financial records. Every end of the month a dairy advisor can visits the farm, inputs these data in the Dairynomics and get a detailed analysis of the financial performance of the farm in terms of cost per liter of milk and cost per acre. Costs calculated include monthly profit and loss, investments costs, feed and fodder cost and fixed costs, all computed per liter of milk produced. The Dairy advisor can then advice the farmers on areas that require improvement.
Dairynomics project was commissioned by the Kenya Market-led Dairy Programme as part of its interventions in addressing the quality of dairy advisory and the understanding the problem of high cost of milk production in Kenya
