Dairy farmers in Meru are using Reggae music to boost milk production

Meru farmers are applying scientific research, which shows music has positive effects on animals as it does to human beings. The farmers play reggae music to the cows, which helps them to relax and increase the amount of milk produced.

Additionally, good music plays a significant role in ensuring the cow has the best sleeping conditions.

Recently, President Uhuru launched construction of a 250 million milk cooling plant in Meru County.

In a statement from Meru Highlands Dairy Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Justus Nguu, said the music had been proven to increase milk yields.

Also, Nguu said, ”During milking, the cow should be comfortable and relaxed. Once the cow relaxes, and there is music in background, you get maximum amount of its milk.”

Construction of the New KCC facility in Nyambene Meru will be complete by October 2020. The holding capacity of the creameries will be approximately 100, 000 liters of milk.

The construction comes after the government assured farmers to improve their welfare. Also, the government will help farmers who rely on milk production to provide for their family.

The President advised dairy farmers from the area to take advantage of the facility after construction to increase their income.

It is expected that the facility will have cooling facilities, bulking, chilling, and pasteurization of raw milk.

Specifically, the facility will assist farmers from five sub-counties in Meru. Such as Tigania East, Tigania West, Tigania Central, Igembe North, Igembe South.

Currently, these areas are served by small cooperatives and self-help groups.
