Welcome to the department of Agriculture Livestock and Fisheries.

This is literally the sector that is being depended upon the by the nearly million populace within our county.

Therefore there is a need to put together our efforts in ensuring that we attain a food secure county and by extension reaping the benefits of our farming activities.

As the accounting officer this very important sector, I wish to assure the public and of my unmeasured commitment in ensuring that all our objectives  in the sector are met.

We will tirelessly work to ensure that we meet our targets across all the value chains and empower our farmers by providing efficient and quality service delivery which shall remain our clarion call in my department.

As a county that is famed with high volumes of milk production, we will soon be officially launching the subsidized Artificial Insemination program having inseminators who will be deployed to each ward and to Dairy Cooperative societies in the county and facilitating them with motorcycles that will be an efficient means of traversing their areas of coverage.

The main objective of the Subsidized AI program is to ensure that we raise at least 120,000 high quality breed of heifers by the end our county’s first breeding phase

which is expected to elapse by the year 2020 and thus increasing our milk productivity.

I urge all dairy farmers to take advantage of this great offer by the county government of Nandi.

We are also  scaling up the fight against Livestock and Crop diseases by offering periodic vaccination against notifyable diseases such as Anthrax, Black Quarter etc. and provision of Pesticides that will continue mitigate against Fall Army Worm which has already been reported in various parts of the county.
