Factsheet Dairy sector
Uganda is a landlocked country in East Africa. Situated on Lake Victoria, it is bordered by the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) to the west, Rwanda to the south, South Sudan to the north and Kenya to the east. The transformation of Uganda’s dairy subsector is driven by a growing consumer population, production and productivity, processing capacity, disposable incomes, urbanization and surplus demand for dairy in the country and the East African community. The dairy herd comprises both exotic and indigenous breeds, managed under zero grazing and free ranging systems. Majority of the producers are small holders using traditional livestock management systems. Increasing demand for dairy products has given rise to market-oriented farmers who have invested in feed and water management systems.
