KDSG pro­vides Napier grass seeds for Kachia graz­ing re­serve

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Maryam Ah­madu-Suka, Kaduna

The Kaduna State Gov­ern­ment has of­fi­cially launched distri­bu­tion of Ti­napiar grass in Laduga Graz­ing Re­serve in Kachia lo­cal gov­ern­ment area of the state.

The Com­mis­sioner for Agriculture, Dr. Daniel Manzo who of­fi­cially flagged off the distri­bu­tion of the grass seedling yes­ter­day, said, “The Napier grass is the high­est yield­ing grass fod­der which is also nu­tri­tious.”

Speak­ing on the ben­e­fits of a well-kept graz­ing re­serve, Manzo said, “Imag­ine a sys­tem where all lac­tat­ing cows will not go out to graze but are kept in one place to con­serve their en­ergy and chan­nel it to milk pro­duc­tion. It will end up pro­duc­ing up to six litres per day.”
