“The project targets 500 beneficiaries from the herders’ communities and is aimed at improving local milk and enhance livestock production in the state,” Rambo said.He noted that each of the beneficiaries would be granted livestock production inputs worth N288,000, adding that the loan would be repaid with two litres of fresh milk daily within 20 months.

“The milk collectors will be provided with motorcycles and milk cans, to collect and transport the fresh milk to livestock investigation and breeding centre at Bulasa, in Birnin Kebbi Local Government Area, for processing.“Each beneficiary will be given the following inputs:

35 bags of wheat, five bags of cotton seed, three blocks of salt licks, drugs and vaccines and N50,000 cash for roughage, among others,” the consultant stated.Earlier, the Director, Animal Husbandry in the ministry, Dr Ahmed Umar-Ambursa, said that the milk collection and processing project was under the Accelerated Agricultural Development Scheme (AADS), piloted by the state government.
