He appealed to them to shift their attention on agribusiness, especially on dairy cattle and goats farming as an alternative way of fighting the poverty in the area.
Sipenji advised farmers to effectively work with his department for sensitization on dairy farming urging them to liaise with him for technical advice and also to seek the services of qualified officers whenever their animals fell sick and discouraged them from engaging quacks.
The officer also advised them to take keen interest in poultry and dairy goat farming which he said had been identified among those economically beneficial projects for small-scale farmers.
Noting that one neither requires a large tract of land nor huge capital to invest in poultry farming, Mr. Sipenji encouraged farmers owning smaller portions of land to shift and engage in this system of farming, assuring them of availability of market for both dairy and
poultry farming products.
