    How to i grow up on this,i have one and half acre of land and i have bought 2 heifers Frisian cows.

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Raymond,
      First of all, congratulations on getting the heifers. One and a half acres is good enough. I suggest you grow some fodder to cut down on costs.
      Napier grass, maize of even lucern are good candidates

  21. MUTAI says:

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Wesley,
      there are banks that offer loan facilities for farmers. You can try Chase Bank or even Transnational. Equity also has some offerings. Going for the Youth Fund is also an option for cheap loans.

    Hi Team,

    thanks for the add, I hail from a semi-arid area in Kenya where the wrath of mother nature hits the region hard in terms of Drought .this paints a fallen pride for the indigenous people living there. in this regard i have an idea of constructing water storages by using locally available resource through my newly registered developers company hence provide avenue for farming in small scale for agricultural produce,Beef Farming , Rabbit farming,poultry farming to curb dependence on relief food from humanitarian aid. I have a small capital and i really need a helping hand to foster the growth of this life saving idea in terms of Finacing and strategic management

    regards

  69. Lucy Mwangi says:

    Where can I find a model of a small cow shed for about 20 cows and the cost?

  70. Anne Wambugu says:

    This is a good forum to learn alot. Am interested in starting dairy firm. my question is can i start with like three cows which are being milked or must i start with calves? How much would a cow producing 20-30ltrs of milk cost?

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Ann,

      With dairy farming you can start whichever way you want as long as it works according to your plan. Most farmers start with in-calf heifers. Theses are pregnant cows that are going to calve down for the first time. This is good as the cows most productive years are still ahead of it and you will enjoy this and also being incalf is an assurance that the cow is able to become pregnant. This is usually a big problem when buying cows as you can easily buy an infertile cow.
      So, i would encourage you to buy incalf cows although they are usually abit costly. You can also choose to buy a mixture of incalf and calfs ready for insemination to control costs.
      I hope this answer’s your question.

  71. kasirye says:

  73. Richard Assenga says:

    Hi, my name is Richard assenga From Dar es salaam Tanzania. i want to set up a greenhouse for growing tomatoes. Where can i get a POLYTHENE paper of size 15M X 30M and at what price?

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Richard,

      Greenhouse paper can be purchased from dealers such as Gnorth and son, Amiran among others.
      It cost me 90KSH the last time i bought. That should translate to 1956 per square meter.
      Thanks

  74. JOSEPH says:

    Hi Erick,
    I have passion for dairy farming. I feel that this is the time to start it.
    What do I require to start it?

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Joseph,

      To start dairy farming, you need to look at several factors and plan accordingly.
      I would advice you to first plant enough feeds for the animals you want to keep. This of course will depend on the acreage of land you have.
      I would advice you plant maize silage or boma rhodes.This is the most important step.
      Secondly, Plan the farm and construct structures if you like. In the case of zero grazing, consider drainage etc. You can get a zero grazing unit plan online.
      With these in place you can now go ahead to purchase cows. Remember, grow slowly and gradually. It is the best way to avoid disapointments.
      I hope this helps

  77. Sammy says:

    Hi Eric,

    Have just joined, i have a 3 acre farm in nyeri that i want to develop. Do you have any leads on how to acquire funding?

    Regards
    Sam

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Sammy,

      Welcome.
      3 acres is good land to start agribusiness on.
      Funding is one of the major challenges in this field.
      I would advice you to first prepare a business plan and remember to include everything. Then try approaching institutions such as youth fund/ uwezo fund for cheap loans.
      If that fail try the more farmer friendly banks.
      Unfortunately funding is one area i cant help much.
      Thanks

Do you have such information as a package?

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Ken,

    Hi,
    I am intrested in starting a dairy business, i have a five acre piece of land currently farming maize but would wish to go for dairy cows. kindly advice on Breeds suitable to my place i.e uasin gishu.

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hello Titus,
      Uasingishu is good for most of the dairy breeds. The important thing to consider is what system you intend to use ie Zero grazing or Semi intensive or grazing. I personally advocate for semi intensive where you have a grazing field but still preserve fodder as hay or silage for the dry season. The rains have now started in Uasin gishu and i would advice you to keep planting maize but use some of it as silage.

  113. BUTERA says:

      Hello Abias,

      Materials used vary depending on the quantity of silage being prepared. Usually, for maize silage, farmers need a forage harvester, this can be self propelled, tractor drawn, or stationery. You also need something to use as a compactor, this can be a tractor, a roller, drum full of water, or just your boots for the case of silage in small tubes. Finally, you need paper to make the silage air tight. Please read the article on silage making on the blog section.

      Thanks

      Regards

      Eric

      Hi Ruth,

      There is a company in Eldoret that has recently introduces packaged silage in 350kg round bales.they sell at around 13ksh a kg and since the bale is already wrapped, it stays fresh for a very long time.

    Hi
    I am Saadi from Afghanistan and I want to start from beginning to grow button mushrooms here.
    Could please help me to succeed?

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi Saad, button mushroom is a lucrative venture when done well and in a receptive market. We have written several articles that give an idea of how to start mushroom farming. We also have videos on youtube recorded in a mushroom farm. That should provide a good idea of what you will need. Please read and watch the videos, after which you can ask specific questions and we will be able to address them.

      Thanks

      Regards

      Eric

  127. David kmau says:

    Hey this is so enriching, am so much interested in starting the mushroom farm i have an 1/8th plot in Nakuru two to be precise how can i go about this?

    • Eric K. (Farming Afrika Admin) says:

      Hi David,
      Mushroom farming is a profitable venture if you have a market for your produce. I would advice you to do as much research as you can about the market for the produce then proceed to seek expertise to set up the venture. There are consultants who can offer their skills at a price. So i wouldn’t be too worried about expertise. Market is the bigger challenge but with good research and groundwork, it can be achieved
