In recent years, Senegal has grappled with drought, which has diminished the quality and quantity of livestock feeds. Kirène, a leading beverage company and Senegal’s
second largest processor and distributor of UHT (ultra-high temperature) milk, is working to find solutions. The company partnered with IFC and the Private Sector Window of the Global Agriculture and Food Security Program (GAFSP) in 2018 to boost milk production and to train commercial and smallholder farmers on animal husbandry and animal health, good agricultural practices, cooperative organization, and financial management. One key solution has been to introduce rain-fed and irrigated fodder production techniques.
