THARAKA NITHI Farmers should sell their livestock during the ongoing drought, an officer in Chuka Igambang’ombe has said.
Livestock marketing officer Njagi Mbuga said farmers should put their livestock on sale to fetch good prices before the animals grow thin and their price depreciates.
He was speaking to the Star in his office on Wednesday.
Mbuga said the drought has led to disease infestation and poor productivity of the animals.
“Farmers should give rose grass, acacia tree leaves, silage to their livestock to restock them,” he said.
