Climate Change effects on Dairy Farming


The Agribusiness Magazine in partnership with Rhamz International has been engaged in the dairy sector in East Africa for close to a decade. The dairy industry requires a lot of pasture, feed resources and water. Adverse climatic change like we see now affects the industry in some of the following ways: reduction in grasses and legumes and water resources.
Also, the feed resources used to supplement pastures are also affected as rains reduce thus lowering productivity and production of milk and meat.

There is also a tendency for pests and disease to build up.
All these lower milk yields and income for farmers.
You will also experience increase in prices of inputs and feeds for dairy cattle.
We have seen cases in Karamoja and Kenya leading to death in large numbers of animals.

Note this
Define. Climate change (global warming), refers rise in average surface temperatures on Earth. Scientific consensus maintains that climate change is due primarily to human use of fossil fuels, which releases carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the air.
