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.

    Am a young pig farmer just about to enjoy the first fruits. I however have realized that most of what I will get will be just to cover the price of feeds. I will appreciate any assistance I can get on sources of quality affordable/ cheap raw material for pig feed and the best feed formulation.

      The formula depends with your cow needs and available feeds. This was posted from a farmer in Kapseret Uasin Gishu who feeds lucerne and sunflower crops alongside hay and silage.
