The farm will serve as a prototype for the National Livestock Transformation Plan and will be known as Ikun Dairy Farm as it is located in Ikun-Ekiti.

“These cows are going to be stationary. They are not roaming anywhere. They are not going on open grazing. They are right here on the farm.

“You know what we have suffered from open grazing not just in the state but across the length and breadth of the country.

“Once this model works, it will be an indication of what we can achieve through the National Livestock Transformation Plan,” the Governor said.

He also noted that the integrated farm, designed to commence production of 10,000 litres of milk daily, was a joint project of Ekiti and Promasidor Dairy Company.
