For many farmers in Kenya buying dairy feeds is usually an expensive task. We went out and researched and came up with a list that has worked for many farmers in Uasin Gishu county. This dairy feed formula will enable you to make your own quality dairy feed at an affordable price of Ksh 1400.

Point to note: If you mix the ingredients well you will even get better quality feeds than in the market.
