Milk Production

In terms of milk production, Uganda is divided into six milk sheds based on the differences in geographical agro ecological characteristics, market dynamics and cattle population.

Central and South western milk sheds together contribute 50% of the total national production. The other milk sheds or regions particularly Eastern and Northern experience a deficit of marketable milk almost throughout the year and are referred to as milk deficit areas while South-Western and Central regions continue to experience a surplus of marketable milk particularly in the wet season. 

Milk surplus and deficit milk sheds present differences in market opportunities for poor dairy farmers and aid in the focusing of knowledge dissemination, market infrastructural investments, and service delivery to dairy farmers.
