Project

Damau Household Milkfarm Project

Project Details

Kaduna State Government with the support and assistance of the Central bank of Nigeria, and Arla of Denmark agreed to invest in a project that will create jobs in the livestock sector, promote economic development and help resolve what has become a security problem by demonstrating a viable alternative to itinerant rearing of cattle and sheep.

Damau Milk Farm will help 1,000 dairy farmers to secure better livelihoods. The farm will have 14,000 cows and each livestock farmer will have five hectares of farmland, complete with farmhouse, cattle shed and irrigated land.

The Damau Milk Farm will be open not only to itinerant pastoralists but any resident of Kaduna State of whatever ethnicity or religion to apply, locate and make a living from the livestock farming value chain. Our hope is that with the success of this initiative, we will replicate this across all the gazette grazing reserves in Kaduna State.
