70% of the world’s bovines belongs to LDCs, but they only produce 29% of the global meat and 23% of the global milk output (Jahnke et al. 1988). Current demand for dairy products in Africa largely outweigh their production (Smith 2015; Lukuyu et al. 2009). A comparative study showed a 4.0% demand growth rate against a 3.1% production growth rate of dairy products in SSA between 1990 and 2004 (Ndambi et al. 2007), While, at the same period, Africa’s dairy imports grew at a rate of 2.1% per annum. Numbers demonstrate that SSA’s dairy production potential is yet to be reached.
