“Milk does not come from cows”

“National demand for milk is around 65 billion litres per year and milk production per cow is about 16 litres per day!”

This was revealed at the Dairy Through Leadership Forum, when dairy farmers and relevant stakeholders converged at De Rust Dairy Farm in Pitsane to discuss the industry.

The forum was organised by the Botswana Investment and Trade Centre (BITC) under the theme ‘Key to economic diversification and food security’.

In his opening remarks, BITC CEO,KeletsositseOlebile explained that the forum was formulated at the Agriculture Thought Leadership held in March in an attempt to address the specific constituents of Agriculture.

This came after the realisation that Agriculture is a broad sector impossible to adequately address in one general forum.

“The purpose of this forum is to assist in coming up with ways and means to boost and grow the Agriculture sector in general and meet the national objectives of employment creation and economic diversification,” he said.
