Dairy development hubs, where farmers’ milk is bulked and cooled, and where they can access credit, training, knowledge, and inputs through farmer-owned enterprises, serve as community anchors. When fully functioning, the dairy hub is a dynamic cluster of services and activities that generate greater income for farmers. By using this system, the quality of milk passing through the traditional market will be improved and access to formal markets will be facilitated through farmer owned-and-operated chilling plants.
This map displays dairy development hubs and a 20-kilometer ‘buffer’ zone. The circles (outlined in blue for ten hubs with chilling plants and in red for five traditional market hubs) approximate catchment areas from where the milk is expected to be supplied by local farmers.
International boundaries (NIMA, 1997), district administrative boundaries (UBOS, 2006a), subcounty administrative boundaries (UBOS, 2002a), water bodies (NFA, 1996; NIMA, 1997; Brakenridge et al., 2006), economic development hubs (ILRI, 2009), milk surplus (ILRI calculation based on IFPRI, 2002), and poverty density (UBOS and ILRI, 2008).
