(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The United States Mission in Nigeria has entered into a partnership with the Ekiti State Government, via the Ikun Dairy Farm, for the production of milk.
This was made known via the official Twitter handle of the U.S Embassy on Monday.
The farm targets production of 10,000 litres of milk daily with cows from the USA.
“U.S. Dairy Milk Cows in Ekiti State! Ikun dairy farm plans to reach 10,000 litres of milk daily with cows from the USA”, part of the statement read.
PROJECTED IMPACT: The partnership will no doubt create local sources of raw materials for dairy products through the state-owned Ikun Dairy Farm, and generally drive Nigeria’s economic diversification programmes.
