For many years the chief source of fresh milk for Kampala has been Kenya. That country at present exports to Uganda an average of 10,000 gallons of milk per day, of which about 8.000 gallons are sold in Kampala. This milk is produced on farms in the Western Highlands of Kenya. where the cattle are entirely exotic, the main breeds being Ayrshires, Guernseys, Jerseys and Friesians. The milk is collected and processed by the Kenya Co-operative Creameries. and transported to Uganda by rail. Some milk is unloaded at stations between the Kenya border and Kampala. but most arrives in Kampala where it is distributed to retail dairies by the Uganda Creameries.
