Agriculture CAS: There is no contaminated milk in the market

Agriculture Chief Administrative Secretary Andrew Tuimur has refuted claims that there is contaminated milk in the Kenyan market.

Tuimur however notes that only a small percentage of milk contains minimal traces of animal antibiotics as farmers do not observe the treatment period regulations before milking their animals.

Recently, there have been reports of contaminated food stuff in the Kenyan market, with fears that milk could be added to that list.

Farmers have been urged to stop over the counter diagnosis for their animals and instead seek professional help from the accredited veterinary and government extension officers to reduce in milk.

Farmers were also advised to prepare their own feeds to cut down on the cost of production as well as increase their profit margins.

Stakeholders want county governments to increase their allocations to the agriculture sector as well as improve extension services to farmers.
