The Nigeria Livestock Development Project (NLDP), conceived by Nestlé Nigeria, seeks to develop more than 1000 hectares of grazing area to demonstrate how the establishment of improved pasture can increase productivity of indigenous cattle and contribute to the professionalization of settled Fulanis as dairy farmers. The selected location for the implementation of the NLDP is the Paikon Kore Grazing Reserve in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), owned by the FGN. The partnership brings together a set of value chain stakeholders with the collective capacity to deepen and accelerate an inclusive business model in dairy, with the FGN allocating 1,000ha to Nestlé’s as its support to the programme.

The team took the opportunity presented by a training planned by Câm dairies for 50 participants and scaled it up to reach over 300, of which more than 50% of the beneficiaries were women. The training, which took place in December 2020, was designed to strengthen the capacity of beneficiaries to understand feeds and feeding, herd health management, milk handling and hygiene, as well as cooperatives formation and dynamics. The first two trainings were intended to help the pastoralists to increase milk production from their animals, improve milk handling, and improve understanding of quality of milk expected.
