Improved Dairy Cows in Uganda: Pathways to Poverty Alleviation and Improved Child Nutrition 

"The introduction and dissemination of improved dairy cow breeds in Uganda is arguably the most significant step taken to develop a modern and commercial dairy industry in the country over the last two decades. This study uses a nationally representative sample of Ugandan households to rigorously examine the impact of adoption of improved dairy cow breeds on enterprise-, household-, and individual child-level nutrition outcomes."

That's true,I remember last year out hybrid Friesian cow(brown and white) gave birth, we would get a 10 litre jerrican of milk every morning and a half in the evening. We sold to several buyers(3) in the neighbourhood on the monthly basis. a litre went for 600, but some took two litres. It brought on some income at the end of every month-enough to save on some necessities at home. That is when I realized diary farming is profitable, imagine if we have 3,5,7 cows.

Hi, I live in the region of this cattle: http://www.ansi.okstate.edu/breeds/breeds/cattle/pinzgauer/index.htm

I studied agriculture and made a milking diploma three decades ago, but we only worked with high yielder races of cattle, as it was since the 1930s. People here in Traunstein helped the Pinzgauer cattle to survive that time and brought it with Austrian farmers into tropic regions, where it is far more resistant as the high yielders and eats more roughage! You can make better cheese with Pinzgauer cattle, and there are esters in that cheese to prevent cancer. In Uganda the Pinzgauer might bring even higher yeilds than Friesian hybrids.

Even with introduction and dissemination of improved breeds, there is still need to support in mobilizing and training of dairy groups on Milk quality and Dairy feed production. This will help them improve their on production and quality of milk.
