FG Launch Livestock Breeding Programme To Checkmate Clashes,Boost Dairy Production

Nigeria’s Ministry of Agriculture has announced the Federal Government decision to launch  National Livestock Breed Improvement Programme (NALBIP), which is aimed at reducing herdsmen/farmer clashes and boosting cattle dairy production.

This announcement was made by Mrs Eno Olotu, Deputy Director, Information, in the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, on Monday in Abuja after the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Alhaji Muhammad Nanono, inaugurated the scheme in Kano.

The Minister said that NALBIP is one of the several programmes in place to improve Nigeria’s livestock production value chain, adding that the genetic pool of indigenous animals especially diary animals would boost Nigeria’s diary production.

Nanono added that the scheme “will improve the livelihood of the pastoral communities and other livestock farmers and support the ministry in addressing the challenges in the livestock value chain particularly, the incessant herder/farmers Crop conflict.”
