The mission took to it's Twitter account, and uploaded pictures of several cows breeding with the caption: “U.S. Dairy Milk Cows in Ekiti State!”.
The mission added that the dairy farm located in Ikun, a collaborative project of the US Consulate in Lagos targets to reach 10,000 liters of milk daily. The cows are imported from the US, the tweet indicated.
The Ikun dairy farm sits on over 250 hectares, has hundreds of cows that graze on it and most are impregnated through artificial insemination.
Such a farm is what many Nigerians, including Nobel Laureate, Prof Wole Soyinka, envisage to solve the problem of incessant farmers - herders clash.
