I suggest that you use part of the acres to grow high quality legume forages. Use bucket drip irrigation to produce during the dry season. This could double your production.

I am glad to mail info if you are interested.

Hi Ken, it`s been a long time. Thanks for your advice, the rest of the acres of land is left to grow thick to be used as grassland for the cattle, we leave them once a while to grass on the land.


Hi Ken, We would be glad to receiving your advice or documentation to be used to multiply the cattle production in Dromankese Animal Husbandry Farm.

All documentation or film materials could be sent to the World Volunteers office in The Netherlands:

Thanks in advance.





I have lived and taught in several African countries but I do not know the forages and legumes best for you. Alfalfa is best worldwide. Takes a lot of water. Check with someone there. has some info. Check the internet.

You are leaving the rest of the land to grow weeds, etc. Plant it in a forage for the cattle.

Mail boxes to support our mobile library project in Kasese, Uganda have been sent-out (and yet to arrive in Uganda), one by the International Book Project (IBP) and the other by the Darien Book Aid. As soon as book arrive, we will contact local schools to organize a book subscription lending service, as we look around to build a modest stock to enhance the book lending program and reading competiton for children.

The mobile libraries project developed in response to the evident lack of access to books and one of the lowest per capita incomes in the world. The goal is to stimulate a thirst for reading and a curiosity for exploration, by providing appropriate resources which is not available in our intervention area. It’s a simple but comprehensive model utilizing “Books-in-a-Box”, a highly effective way in ensuring that learners get the information, better grades, and the support they need to move from primary through secondary to tertiary education. In nutshell, the project will provide rural poor children and teachers with globally appropriate education through mobile book library, challenge intelligent children, stimulate their growth, and training Uganda's next generation of leaders; to maximize the chance of success at school and help to alleviate poverty by developing adults who are literate, creative and able to face the challenges of life.
