If you are depending on salary alone, you are just one step away from poverty! This is one of the posts that attracted UPDF officers to visit Itungo farm for a study tour.

UPDF officers led by Col. Emmanuel Muhoozi, the Admin officer from the First Infantry Division at Kakiri barracks visited the Itungo farm owned by Pison Busingye and his wife Jolly Asiimwe Busingye to learn how to manage a dairy farm in a small space.

During the tour, Busingye advised them to start farming despite the small space and how much they earn.

“Engaging in farming doesn’t depend on how big the land you have is, but rather doing things the right way such that you have quality animals or plants that will give you higher yields,” he said.

The officers were taken through zero grazing, pasture management, waste management and value-addition enterprises.

Col. Muhoozi asked the officers to put into practice what they had learnt from the tour.

“You can start something from what you have learnt and with the help from WAZALENDO SACCO, you can get financial assistance,” he said.
