ISLA Kenya Livestock intensification Program

The greatest challenges with livestock included feeding, issues arising from the death toll of livestock, pests attacking the livestock, declining milk output from the cows feeding in the forest, and difficulties noticing cows’ fertility signs. Mr Limo says farmers received training on cattle rearing, including caring for fodder crops, setting up a cow barn, monitoring pests and diseases, and adding a feeding trough. The result? He has doubled the amount of milk produced on his farm.
