The Zimbabwe Association of Dairy Farmers (ZADF) and the Zimbabwe Dairy Industrial Trust (ZDIT) are coordinating the programme.

The scheme meant to boost the national dairy herd, is funded from the 25 per cent levy on imported dairy products imposed by the Government.

ZADF president Mr Emmanuel Zimbandu told Business Chronicle the association will next month assess the impact of the scheme with a view to establish which areas still need cows.

The objective is to ensure the country produces adequate milk for its consumption.
