Send A Cow gives out 120 oxen to vulnerable groups

Development partners want subsistence farmers to fully embrace mechanized agriculture so as to increase agricultural productivity and improve their household income.

Ugandan farmers have for long used traditional methods of farming, particularly hoes hence low farm productivity

The Country Director Send A Cow Patrick Sambaga says farmers should integrate machines to plough larger pieces of land without no much labor intensity

Sambaga sounded this while handing over 120 oxen to women and girls with disabilities in Butansi village in Kamuli district to scale up farming and improve people’s lives

He says over 1600 vulnerable persons will be given the animals to help improve farm productivity and income which will come after hiring out the animals to other family members
