The Ministry of Agriculture has started collecting views from farmers on the proposed Livestock Law that will protect livestock farmers across the country.
According to the Principal Secretary of Livestock Harry Kimutai, this will ensure farmers earn from their sweat and are not exploited by middlemen.
"This Law will ensure all farmers issues are put into law. It will ensure a farmer operates in a good environment, their investment in livestock to be recognized by law and protect them on how they rear their livestock and how they sell their products," said Kimutai.
He spoke to the press during a stakeholders meeting to discuss and give their input on the proposed law before it is implemented in Eldoret town on Thursday.
"Once implemented the law bill will also ensure that farmers have a chance to get help through government organizations like Kenya Animal Genetic Resource Center and Kenya Veterinary Vaccine Production Institute which help in research and give drugs and Vaccination to animal," he added.
He further said they will move to other counties for farmers to give their input in the proposed law.
Kimutai said he high cost of production which has affected yields will be looked into.
