Global Nutritional Solutions (GNS) yesterday unveiled GNS Bovita and Maziwa Block range of products, a mineral and vitamin supplement, in a bid to improve milk production, fertility, and the general health of livestock.
The supplementary feeds will be distributed by iProcure, the firm’s sole distributor in the East Africa region. Additionally, Bovita Maziwa is taking centre-stage in providing in-class training to farmers especially through workshops.
“Our commitment to farmers is to drive down the cost of production by leveraging iProcure’s distribution network and technology to provide farmers with nationwide access to high quality, yet affordable livestock nutritional supplements, leading to on-farm productivity, improved yields and livelihoods,” said Dr Jacktone Agona, an animal health expert and project manager iProcure.
A section of people who raise cattle, for example, use supplements for boosting animal health, supporting immune system, developing bone and muscle functions, and to improve nervous system functions.
“GNS has identified Central, North and South Rift regions as areas where there is greater need for this kind of animal nutritional supplement that will lessen disease occurrence such as milk fever, mastitis and lameness,” said Emre Muftuoglu, general manager of GNS.
