Livestock prices drop by 70 per cent in arid zones

Published on 09 August 2011

Livestock prices have dropped by about 70 per cent in drought-stricken districts. A cow is selling for about Sh4,000 in these areas from Sh13,000. A joint report by the government, World Food Programme, USAid and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network links the decline to lack of water and pasture.
