Kisumu County to Build Dairy Farm to Boost Milk Production

09 February 2017

KENYA - An Israeli Company is seeking permission from the Kisumu County government to establish a dairy farm in a move meant to boost milk production and lower commodity costs for residents.

The county has opened talks with Alefbet Planners' Livestock and Farm department to build loose barns for 10, 000 dairy cows and set up a feed manufacturing arm.

Last week another Israeli company- Raanan-announced it was putting up a fish and animal feed company in the lakeside town.

AlefBet officials said on Tuesday that they will provide comprehensive solutions for the dairy farmers, with tailored solutions to meet various climate, agricultural and geographic conditions.

Muhoroni sub-county, which borders dairy farming Kericho and Nandi counties, has been identified as a potential location for the farm.
