Data was obtained via a series of structured interview schedules. The study found that almost all of the livestock farmers in the study area access and use mobile phones as advanced ICT tools very frequently on a regular basis. The majority of livestock farmers also had access to the internet and other social media platforms like Facebook, WhatsApp and YouTube, although their use for sharing livestock-related information was rather restricted.
