FROM THE NEWS

Talk to Us About
Sustaining high incomes from your dairy cows through planned feeding.

We support you to sustain high incomes from your Dairy Farm through development of cost-effective feeding plans specifically designed for your cows.

You are a commercial dairy farmer and want to maintain a high income from your dairy enterprise.
We will be glad to work with you to achieve your goal. We will use ENDIISA TOOL to develop your monthly and annual feeding plans for your dairy cows using feed types that you can easily get from your locality.

We will do even more and will calculate for you the feeding costs and the amount of land you would need to establish planted fields for each of the different feed types in order to have adequate feed for your dairy cows.

In case you do not have adequate land we will let you know how much feed you will need to get from outside your farm to effectively implement your feeding plan.

We will look forward to contributing to the success of your dairy business.

Example:
David, whose cow weighs 450Kg has delivered its 4th calf and is in the 2nd month of milking, can for the next 5 days offer his cow a feed combination of:

   Elephant grass  53Kg
 2  Banana Peels  23.5Kg
 3  Lalab  23Kg

At a cost of 2,000 Uganda shs for this feed combination(when the feed is from his own fields).
