The target is to begin with one cow per youth after training and exposure to successful farming and working on basic preparatory requirement for a dairy cow, the business which will requires an investment of Sh200,000 (USD 2000)per person when starting and a close monitoring for almost one year with technical support by professional managers and veterinary officers.
