The recent trend in the dairy farming has witnessed an increase in production and preservation of maize fodder. The process has typically been characterized by manual processes of cutting the maize stocks in the field, collecting and chopping them through chaff cutters fitted to tractors/diesel engine or electric motors. SNV through the Kenya Market-led Dairy Programme (KMDP), Eldoret Dairy Farmers’ Association (EDFA) and Nundoroto (an agricultural contractor) organized a field day where they demonstrated the ‘maize train’. The maize train presented the first mechanized and synchronized harvesting of maize fodder for EDFA farmers in North Rift, Kenya. Nundoroto is current offering these services.
