Government to promote dairy goat farming

Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Irrigation Cabinet Secretary Hon. Mwangi Kiunjuri said on October 12 that the Government through the Ministry, will promote dairy goat farming as goat milk was highly nutritious and therefore recommended for consumption by especially young children and the elderly.

He spoke when he launched the Sh. 100 million Dairy Goat Artificial Insemination (AI) Centre at Ndomba, Kirinyaga County which has been developed by the Kenya Animal Genetic Resource Centre (KAGRC).
