Livestock industry in race to regain EU market

To catch up with meat exports from Botswana to the EU, the government of Kenya plans to give hay storage and balers to its livestock farmers. While Botswana boasts some of the most healthy stocks in the world and reaps many benefits from the preferential trade agreement with the European Union, Kenya saw its exports crumble in the 1980s, when mismanagement of the sector met with a deep cut in agricultural subsidies as a result of the Bretton Woods agreement. Now, the government wants to raise the share of livestock production beyond its current levels of 12% and profit fully from the preferential trade agreement with the European Union.
