Why do i like the Simgas Biogas Milk chiller- i have seen farmers suffering in storing milk in my home district in kenya. Milk is only collected once a day by trucks from the dairy cooperatives. If a farmer misses the morning truck, he has to wait until the following day. By extension,  the days milk is wasted because there is no refrigerators or any other viable storage method.
Sometimes due to poor road network, the collection truck misses to visit the village for 3 days.
Due to the high supply of milk and low demand ( due to the fact that only co operatives can procure), the farmers sell the milk at a throw away prices.
I believe the simgas Biogas Chiller will assist farmers in storing the milk and by extension improve their livelihood by  offering storage till the collection trucks visits the village. The stored milk will also offer nutritional value to the farmers as they can store it for the consumption by the families.
