More than 5,000 dairy farmers in Kangema, Murang’a County, have now chosen to develop milk processing, by using their own money from their savings and to deal away with bank loan.
The Kangema plant is expected to produce at least 20,000 litres of milk per hour when the Sh300 million plant operation is done.
The farmers have bought a piece of land in laikipia of 400-acre, under a society which they have registered by the name Kangema Unity Investment Cooperative.
Their aim is to grow hay and distributing to its members to compliment the dairy farming.
The cooperative’s chairman John Mugo said farmers have chosen to take part into the dairy sector to make a growth in their incomes.
He added that the facility will be operating by December and will be processing milk and making yoghurt and cheese.
