Cooperatives offering artificial insemination services have been urged to adhere to the code of ethics while ensuring farmers get quality services.
The County Government yesterday handed over 15 artificial insemination kits to 15 cooperative societies across the County.
County Agriculture Minister, Dr. Immaculate Maina, acknowledged the serious ethical issues in the sector and said the County will be keen to guard against professional malpractices.
She added that, in providing well bred animals, farmers need to adhere to the nutritional aspects which go hand in hand with the breeding aspects, and the County under ASDSP II has been able to train farmers on feed formulation.
In addition to that, the feeds help farmers reduce their cost of production with proper rations of feed mixed by them.
The County continues to work with the private sector to increase accessibility of the service in marginalized areas while validating their licenses to avoid exploitation of farmers in Nakuru County.
Cooperatives receiving the equipment include Tegat, Ainoptich, Kiptororo, Kamarus, Kihingo, Kerkus, Ndabibi, Elburgon Progressive, Kasambara, Sagaitini, Wecha farmers, Bidii, Koset Youth, Rongai Acacia and Nakuru West Dairy Cooperatives.
