DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS ORIENTATION

Uasin Gishu County Executive Committee Member for Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Mr. Samuel Yego, has embarked on an orientation of County Projects funded by IFAD and G.O.K.
Accompanied by Ag.CO Livestock Mr. Langat and officials of Small Holder Dairy Commercialization Program(SDCP), they are visiting several sites in the County. The orientation on SDCP projects commenced on Monday and is set to continue into the week.
SDCP fosters market-driven development of Kenya’s informal dairy industry, working with poor smallholder dairy producers and traders to strengthen their capacity to respond to market opportunities.
” We are lucky to have been supported in 4 Sub Counties, i.e. Kapseret, Ainabkoi, Turbo and Soy which forms 5 Dairy Commercialization areas. This has really improved our milk production in DCAs from 3 litres to 8.5 litres per cow per day.” Mr. Yego said.
During the orientation, the CECM assured the residents of the County’s support inform of subsidized products.
“A. I services have been availed in most of the cooperative societies and semen is currently subsidized to ensure affordability by every farmer in the region. We have also provided maize seeds to the vulnerable in the County.” Noted the CEC.
“Let’s take advantage of SDCP’s focus on improving market familiarization and technical knowledge of production processes and improving enterprise skills.” He noted.
Tuiyoluk FCS, Kapngetuny FCS and several farmers in Ainabkoi Subcounty are among beneficiaries of the project. They have received milk coolers, flexy biogas and trainings on dairy farming among other products.
