SMALLHOLDER AND PASTORAL FARMERS BENEFIT FROM IMPROVED LIVESTOCK BREEDS

Lamu County Government in collaboration with Kenya Climate Smart Agriculture Project (KCSAP) has today handed over improved breeds of 39 goats and 20 heads of cattle to Tujimudu Farmers Group from Mokowe and Baghdad FADC Group from Hindi, in Hindi Ward.

With the new breeds, it is expected that the Groups will transform their communities through livestock sector’s contribution to sustainable agriculture.

While addressing the Group’s members at Mokowe and Hindi, Lamu County’s Chief of Staff Mohamed Bute, Chief Guest, urged the two Groups to preserve the livestock for prosperity and not seek short-term benefits.

He added that Lamu County is committed to fulfil its KCSAP partnership mandate for the benefit of its smallholder and pastoral communities, in line with it’s agricultural agenda.

Lamu County is among the 24 Counties earmarked to benefit from the KCSAP project, a Government of Kenya project jointly supported by the World Bank, which aims to increase agricultural productivity and enhance resilience to climate change risks in select targeted smallholder farming and pastoral communities in Kenya.
