IN PHOTOS; How the farm tour and training at Njoroge’s Dairy Farm in Nyeri went down
The training took place on 9th of February 2019 in Mukurweini – Nyeri County. Njoroge’s Dairy Farm saw a group of 68 trainees attending, this were mostly starters in dairy farming, farm hands, experienced farmers who wanted to increase knowledge and individuals with an interest in dairy farming.
Mr. Njoroge, the farm owner and manager lectured on various topics including, how to run dairy farming as a business, feed formulation and preparation, silage making, budgeting, disease identification and control, milking and hygiene, selection of breeds and much more.
From the feedback, those in-attendance appreciated the farm as a good starting ground for especially beginners. Mr Njoroge was also praised for his willingness to share information, openness and humbleness.
One of the attendees updated on a whatsup group “It was a great lesson to visit Mr. Njoroge’s dairy farm. You can easly mistake the old man for a worker in the farm and just ignore him. But once he starts his lectures about dairy farming you are caught in surprise and you can’t afford to miss a word. Even those of us who have been practicing dairy farming I could see all nodding after realizing where we have been doing things wrong way. We also realized that for New farmers what matters is the quality of animals that you purchase and not the expensive structure that you have. The feeding technics which enables Njoroge to feed his more than 20 animals from a mere 3.2 acre farm is like a miracle.Let’s remember his slogan of smart farming“ Said Titus Kithana
