Physical conditions that favour dairy farming in Kenya include;

  • Low temperatures of 150c -180c/ Cool conditions are ideal for survival of high quality exotic breeds which have low tolerance to high temperatures.
  • High rainfall/annual rainfall of 1500-2000mm throughout the year ensuring availability of pasture all year round.
  • Fertile volcanic soils that ensure constant growth of pasture and high quality nutritious grass.
  • Permanent water source from rivers and lakes due to  heavy and reliable rainfall.
