Cattle Keeping

I have been a cattle keeper for about two years ago and adopted the idea from my neighbour who earns more profit. I started it so that i can sustain my living in any way. This waork has moved me from one step to another in my life this is to mean that i was a jobless person but now i can atleast get a little money to sustain my family further more my daughter has been not attending his education because of fee but know through NAMATSI SELF HELP GROUP with their contribution to me and giving me some idea on how to maintain the tied of this cattle and they boosted me by giving me a milky cattle that i could milk and sell that milk. There are some challanges that faces my livestock while i am keeping them there is a challange of sickness, death, attack by wild-dog from the forest lack of market due to flactuation of price and lack of finance to hire a person to take care of they so i would ask the orrganisation to boost me so that i would achieve my destiny and to boost knowledge in my community. I wish that God will choose you to assist me.
