Three Busia Dairy Co-ops to benefit from milk coolers, says Deputy Governor

Busia Deputy Governor Moses Mulomi and Chief Officer for Animal Resources Richard Achiambo admire their God-fathers as Chief Officer Ruth Mukhongo, Andrew Otiti and Dr Isaac Omeri (right) look on.

Adungosi, Nambale and Busibwabo   Dairy  Co-operatives  will benefit from a cooler each  for preserving their milk, Busia Deputy Governor  Moses Mulomi  has revealed.

Speaking in Busibabwo  where  he witnessed  farmers’  groups receive  Dairy  cows and goat milk courtesy of Send a Cow Organization, the  Deputy Governor said  already there are programs to supply coolers in Butula and Funyula, adding that

” The County Government has set aside  Sh700 million to  revamp the milk sector  and to ensure each ward in the country gets milk coolers,” he said.

Mulomi  told county residents  to stop shunning away from farming saying it’s a key to better health and riches though most people look at it as a dirty job and for the poor.

” We shall   be visiting farmers who have received tools for farming and health sanitation to see how they are faring on and where they need help,” he said.

Chief Officer for  Animal Resources Richard Achiambo told farmers   with traditional  Cows not to lose hope  saying  they will soon have something to smile about.

” Instead of selling off their animals due to low milk yields,  we have  introduced a new technology  through the department of Veterinary Services where such animals will be injected and  milk production will increase,” he said,  adding that the County Government has given farmers many dairy animals.

Chief Officer for Agriculture  Ruth Mukhongo  urged farmers to embrace the Send a Cow program to increase milk production and  help improve their lives.   She also thanked Send a Cow Kenya for  bringing the services to  Busia residents.

Send a Cow  Kenya System  Coordinator   Sheila Halder and Head of Programs  Anna  said the project is aimed at improving the nutrition and health of 73,729 vulnerable men, women and children in western Kenya.
