Nakuru County Governor H.E. Susan Kihika has continued her campaign to boost milk production in Kuresoi South and Molo sub-counties today, advocating for competitive pricing of milk by dairy processors. Accompanied by Bio Foods Ltd CEO Mr. Joachim Westerveld, Governor Kihika expressed her unwavering commitment to ensuring that dairy farmers in the county receive fair prices for their milk, reduced costs for dairy feed, and access to a well-trained team of extension services.
