Nigerian cows are the worst milk producers in the world – Audu Ogbeh

– The minister said a cow in the Unitd States of America drinks an average of 100 litres of water per day
– He said some cows produce about 100 litres of milk on a daily basis

The minister of agriculture and rural development, Audu Ogbeh, has said that Nigerian cows are the worst producers of milk across the world.

Ogbeh while speaking in Lagos at the 79th anniversary of the Ikoyi Club 1938 on Thursday, September 28, said the cows raised in Nigeria produce far less quantity of milk than others in other parts of the world.

The minister said while cows in some countries produce 100 litres of milk daily, an average Nigerian cow produces less than one litre of milk in a day.

He also said that the cows in countries like Holland produce 50 litres per day on the average while the US cows have more production.

Ogbeh said: “An average cow in the US drinks an average of 100 litres of water per day; but in Nigeria, I doubt whether a cow can get two liters of water per week.

“The earlier farmers started developing ranches for cows, the better it would be for the cow market and its entire value chain.”
