Fighting locust plagues while increasing milk yields!

Did you know that locust plagues are one of the major problems faced by farmers in Africa? Locust swarms can travel hundreds of kilometers per day, consuming most of the vegetation in their path and causing devastating damages to local farmers’ crops.

Did you also know that Africa’s milk consumption comes to only ONE THIRD of the world average due to the local cows’ being significantly malnourished?

What if we could gather the locusts and use them to create a protein-rich powder for cows, reducing crop damage while increasing milk yields and helping millions of Africans to have a better nutrition?

“Locust Pocus” aims to tackle Africa’s two problems, damaged crops and malnourished cows, in order to help feed more people in the coming years!
