BONDO'S Lake-Land Diary Savings and Cooperative Society has increased its milk production from 570 to 800 litres a day in three months.
Ladcos chairman Wycliffe Kuyo said the increase was spurred by a change of attitude towards dairy farming by farmers since September last year.
He said many farmers with the help of Equity Bank loans have begun aggressive dairy production.The move has helped curb milk deficit, Kuyo added.
The chairman said if the trend keeps up, they will be able to meet the current demand of an estimated 8,000 litres a day.Kuyo added that they have entered into negotiations with the Kenya Finance Trust which will soon start giving loans for value addition to the dairy farmers.
He urged more farmers to take up dairy farming. Kuyo said Equity Bank plans to give them value addition equipment in the form of a loan to enhance their productivity.
