The Kano State Government is set to train 100 pastoralists in artificial insemination of cattle in the Republic of Turkey.
Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje said this during a town hall meeting to celebrate his administration’s 100 days in office.
Ganduje said the training was aimed at improving the production of milk and meat through crossbreeding using insemination of local livestock in the area.
The governor maintained that the training was also designed to train Fulani herdsmen to improve reproductive efficiency of cattle rearing in line with international best practices.
He said the exercise was also to train the pastoralists on modern grazing techniques.
“The training will modernise the entire system of cattle rearing; that is why our government sponsored the youths to acquire modern way of artificial insemination to ensure high quality meat and milk,’’ he said.
The governor also announced the construction of another bridge at Daurayi-Madobi junction in the metropolis.
“The bridge will also ease traffic congestion and promote socio-economic activities in the state and the region as a whole,” he said.
NAN reports that dignitaries, who graced the occasion, included the Emir of Kano, Malam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, Alhaji Maitama Sule, and National Secretary of APC, Alhaji Mala Buni.
Others were National and state Assembly members as well as other top government functionaries. (NAN)
