Fresh Dairy To Intensify Training For Dairy Farmers
Regular training of farmers in best practices in dairy farming is one of the ways through which Fresh Dairy plans to ensure that there is continuous production of milk to meet export demands. The training will be channeled through farmer field days that bring together stakeholders in the dairy value chain in different places where their farmers are based.
The training will be accompanied with close monitoring on their farms to ensure that they are putting into practice what they learn.
According to John Gethi, the director of milk procurement at Fresh Dairy, training conducted in the past are already yielding results, as evidenced by a growth in exports from $13m between January and August 2016 to $18m in the same period this year.
