Series 10 - Ep 16: OFSP, Insurance, Post-Harvest and Dairy Cows

Welcome to a new series of Shamba Shape Up celebrating our tenth anniversary.

We are in Homabay County, before visiting the farm we head to Jugs Bakery, they bake the best breads and cakes in Homabay County. We learn how to bake using mashed Orange Fleshed Sweet Potatoes also know as Puree and the importance of baking with it.

This week we visit farmer Samuel Omoro with a farm stretching 8 acres.

First: We get advice on how to avoid and insure our farm and livestock if any major disaster strikes e.g. Drought, Flood or if any death of livestock.

Second: We get advice about post-Harvest losses, what causes them and how applying food quality and safety standards help reduce waste while increasing farmers profit.

Third: We get advice on looking after dairy cows on one of the main challenges farmers experience that is internal and external parasites.
