While additional land is being made available for livestock feed production in northern Nigeria, Kenya’s farmers are set to benefit from fodder machinery donated by an agency in Turkey.

In the north of Nigeria, the local state government has allowed the release of new land for the production of livestock fodder. As well as boosting animal feed supplies, the initiative aims to increase milk production and facilitate artificial insemination, according to Economic Confidential.
