Brookside Briders Show

After attending the last year of edition of brookside briders show i learnt a lot about livestock keeping thats has turned me into a great man from a mere struggle livestock keeper.i didn't know that animal straw was so good for my dairy animals until i learnt it from the show plus other practices that helped me improve milk productivity for my dairy cows. When i got back home in western province,busia town i changed my system of livestock keeping form free grazing to zero grazing and feeding the animals with the animal straw,nappier grass and ensuring high standard cleanliness in my zero grazing unit and from that day my dairy cattle's have improved in productivity and i get over 100 litres of milk per day which i supply in the entire town including hotels.from the show i also got an idea of starting a business of selling animals straw to dairy farmers and since them life has become an easy ride
