The training focused on safe milk production by farmers.

Joseph added that in order for farmers to have safe milk, they must ensure proper hygiene in their farms, milking parlor, kraals among other areas where animal live and feed from.

He further cautioned farmers against using farm inputs without first consulting the extension workers who have got vast knowledge on handling of animals.
