Abstract

The benefits of the farm to the community are multifold. About 80% of workers in the Dairy House Farm project come from Molapowabojang, a rural village in which this farm is located. There is no doubt that this farm contributes to the wellbeing of its employees. This project also contributes directly to community members not working in the farm. They are given liquid whey for free and the product is useful in a number of ways. It can be used to cook sour meal (sorghum or porridge). Overall, the madila product is highly nutritious making the farm contribute to development of the village by reducing the rate of malnutrition among people especially, children who benefit from it.
