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.
