“A properly-structured and well-managed grazing reserve will improve the well-being of our cattle. With it, we can monitor what they eat and correctly estimate outputs we are likely to get from their products,”
Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal stated at the opening of a National Retreat on Livestock and Dairy Development organised by the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Tambuwal added, “My thinking is that herdsmen move about in search of greener pasture. If we can bring the green pasture to their doorsteps, I am sure they will be willing to settle down. “
The governor disclosed that grazing sites would be located in six local government areas of the state, and assured that Sokoto would support every initiative aimed at improving the livestock and dairy sub-sector.
