Despite being one of the world’s major milk-producing countries, Pakistan’s average milk yield per cow is far below that of other nations. The founders of Cowlar, a startup based in Islamabad, Pakistan, believe that by increasing the efficiency of each farmer’s herd by even five percent, more than USD 1 billion could be added to the country’s economy.
