Large scale commercial dairy farming in Uganda: a farm management case study



Large scale commercial dairy farming in Uganda: a farm management case study



East African Journal of Rural Development 4(2): 21-35



A general guideline is given to farmers intending to start large-scale dairy farming. The guidance offered is both positive and negative in character: positive in providing standards of performance which may be expected, by indicating critical areas in the development process, and negative in recording the vicissitudes of one new dairy business and the measures taken to rescue it from early misfortune. The paper alternates between these two aspects.
