High court lawyer boosts income in dairy farming

Migori County based high court lawyer has resorted to dairy farming after the proceeds from court cases dropped following the effects of corona virus pandemic.
Albert Mudeyi, an advocate at Migori High Court said he has nurtured ambitions of becoming an exceptional dairy farmer for the last twenty years which came true recently and now has 20 high grade dairy cows.
Mudeyi says dairy farming has kept him busy and active especially at the time when activities at Kenyan courts were controlled to keep in check Covid-19 infections.
“When My children are not studying, they are always helping in feeding, milking or any other assigned activity in the farm,” he said.
Asked whether there was sufficient market for milk production in the county, Mudeyi noted that his close to 200 litres of milk per day is consumed locally and was not even enough.
He said each one of his cows produces an average 25 litres of milk a day, and hopes to increase the number of cows to cover the demand which increases every day.
Mudeyi attributes his success to aggressive search of milk high performers breeds in Central and Rift Valley Regions and after resilient ventures he has managed to weather challenges linked to dairy farming.
The high court lawyer challenged residents of Migori and Nyanza at large to embrace dairy farming as a sure way of boosting their economic status.
The common belief that dairy farming only thrives well in parts of Rift Valley and Central Kenya is not true and Mudeyi has proved this.
