Low production of diary products is due to;

  • Stiff competition from imported milk and milk products from alternative land users e.g tea and coffee.
  • High incidence of pests and diseases e.g ticks, foot and mouth reduce the quality of dairy cattle thus low milk yield.
  • High costs of farm inputs has limited and minimized the mechanization of the diary farms.
  • Poor management of dairy cooperatives results to misappropriation of funds leading to delayed payments that lower the farmers initiatives.
  • Prolonged and abrupt droughts that lower the quality/quantity of pasture resulting to low yields.
  • Poor roads that is impassable during rainy season. This leads to delay in delivery of milk to the creameries.
