The call was made by the director animal resources in the ministry of agriculture animal industry and fisheries, Dr.Nicholas Kauta.
He said that at the show, farmers will discover different animal breeds and their production capacity.
?They will learn the best practices of managing livestock, taking into account the animal diseases, recommended treatments and advice from officials from the ministry of agriculture who have been deployed in the agriculture show to help farmers understand their livestock,? said Kauta.
Many technologies for example those into diary production are being displayed like the equipment, milking machines, gels applied on the animals while milking, tips on how to milk animals without causing pain, how to feed them to deliver the desired litters, and even machines that can be used to make quick and better feeds for the cattle.
Apart from livestock, there will also learn the latest developments in research, crops and how to even look after the plants since there is a demonstration garden.
?Farmers interested will be taught practically how to apply fertilizers, on which crops and how. This will avoid excuses by many farmers that they don?t know the best practices of using fertilizers or choosing the right ones,? added Kauta.

According to Kauta, livestock farmers have been dodging the show claiming they were not learning much, an issue that has been addressed in this year?s show.
There will be a screen displaying the different diseases and diseases causing organism that affect livestock?s and these will be accompanied with flyers.
These contain information about the different diseases, signs and symptoms and directions on where to go for assistance.
?When you receive these flyers ask them to direct you where you can get all the information because our officers have been deployed to offer the services,? he added.
