Nigerian cows, worst milk producers globally –Ogbeh

By: Gideon |Time : September 29, 2017, 03:12:32 AM
The Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, Audu Ogbeh, says cows raised in Nigeria are the worst milk producers in the world.

He said an average cow in the country produces less that one litre of milk per day, compared to other climes where a cow could produce 100 litres per day.

Ogbeh said this in Lagos on Thursday, at the 79th Anniversary of Ikoyi Club 1938.


 
According to the minister, an average cow in Holland produces a minimum of 50 litres of milk per day, while in the United States, milk production per cow could rise to over 100 litres.

He said moving cows from place to place was a major problem affecting cows and milk production in Nigeria, stressing that the earlier farmers started developing ranches for cows, the better it would be for the cow market and its entire value chain.

Ogbeh said, “An average cow in the US drinks an average of 100 litres of water per day; but in Nigeria, I doubt whether a cow can get two liters of water per week.”
