The County Government of Nakuru has partnered with the Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization to train farmers on how to use new technology and modern equipment for high yielding returns.
Poultry farmers from all the sub-counties have also received incubators to reproduce the new chicken breed. With the donated 340 incubators, the farmers are expected to rear a fast-maturing and disease-resisting breed of chicken that can lay over 200 eggs in a year. The County Government is distributing fertilized eggs and power generators to the farmers for an easier start to the project. This project is aimed at improving food security and living standards of farmers in the County. Training on how to use the incubators correctly has also been offered to the farmers, as well as information on the right medication to stop the spread of poultry diseases.
