Southern Province Livestock and Fisheries Assistant Officer ARNOLD KAPELA has challenged Dairy Smallholder farmers in Choma district to embrace modern technology, alongside indigenous knowledge, in dairy feed production.
Mr. KAPELA says this is key in improving milk production especially during the dry season.
He says the ministry is working with the Adventist Development Relief Agency -ADRA- Zambia and Partners to promote the Jersey Breed and the production of dairy feeds using climate Smart technologies such as HydroPonic agriculture.
Mr. KAPELA was speaking during a Jersey Project field day at Mukamba Dairy Cooperative’s Shindaile farm.
ADRA Jersey Project Coordinator EMELDER NANYANGWE said the project is running from 2022 to 2025 and will directly support 8,250 individuals.
The goal of the JERSEY project is to sustainably improve livelihoods, resilience, and dairy productivity of Smallholder Farmers.
