AVCD Program - Dairy Annual Survey 2017

The overall purpose of the USAID-funded Feed the Future AVCD Dairy Value Chain component is to improved diet diversity, food security and rural incomes by improving milk production, productivity, supply, and market access. It will improve by 25% benefiting 40,000 smallholder farmers in Busia, Homabay, Kisumu, Kitui Makueni, Migori, Siaya, Machakos and Vihiga. It also seeks to establish six dairy business hubs reaching 5,000 farmers—offering animal health, artificial insemination, advisory and financial services—and nine innovations platforms serving farmers, processors, market traders and service providers.
