Government is set to establish special zones for production of livestock for export. Speaking at the Jamhuri Showground in Nairobi when he presided over the official opening of the 2018 Livestock Breeders Show and Sale, President Uhuru Kenyatta announced government plans to establish 50 special zones, technically known as feedlots, for production of livestock for the export market. The new initiative will be done in collaboration with strategic partners with the aim of mitigating against climate change and saving farmers from the losses they incur during drought. The president said the feedlot initiative is part of the broad livestock value chain improvement programme which is being implemented by the government and partners.
