Makueni Dairy Sector Turnover likely to hit KES 1 Billion
Makueni County has a big potential for milk production. In 2015 the County marketed over 17 million litres of milk worth over Ksh 500M. The potential remains higher. To harness the potential and therefore improve human nutrition and increase household incomes, several interventions have been initiated including: Subsidised Artificial Insemination, milk cooling plants, support to milk transportation and a milk processing plant at Kikima.
To ensure that even the poor, marginalized section of the farmers acquire quality dairy breeds, the County government is subsidizing the Artificial Insemination service. The farmer pays Ksh 300 per service whereas the government through the department of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries bears the balance. The price of an A.I. service in the market ranges from Sh 1,500 – Sh 4,000 depending on the source of the semen.
According to Public Procurement to disposal preference and preservations amendment regulations 2013, it states that any procuring entity shall allocate at least thirty percent of its procurement spend for the purposes of procuring goods, works and services from micro and small enterprises owned by youth, women and PWD.
For the purposes of implementing this affirmative action, the County Government of Makueni under the leadership of His Excellency Professor Kivutha Kibwana has embarked on sensitization and actualization of this affirmative action through its budgets, procurement plans, tender notices and contract awards.
