Ekiti imports 250 dairy cows from US to boost milk production


The Ekiti state government has received 250 cows from the United States as part of a joint venture programme with Promasidor Group, a food and beverage company.

This is to help boost milk production through the state-owned Ikun Dairy Farm.

Akin Oyebode, the state commissioner for finance and economic planning, made this known via a tweet, on Thursday.

The cows arrived in crates at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos.

Oyebode  said the jersey cows were taken for delivery to Ikun Dairy Farm Limited.

He noted that the state now has 300 cows as it works towards having a total of 500.

“Update: 250 cows arrived this morning, for onward delivery to Ikun Dairy Farm Limited; a JV between Ekiti state government and Promasidor Group. We now have 300 jersey cows, and almost 500 in total. We moo-ve!” the tweet reads.
