SIR â€” I am writing in response to the article which appeared in the New Vision of July 20 entitled â€œMilk boosts Naggalamaâ€.
These are the facts about the school farm:
In 1999 the school received a donation of Caritus Italiana (cattle breed) to set up a dairy project when Mr. Gerald Muguluma was the headteacher. The project which started with only four cows now boasts of 17 animals. Out of these 12 are adults and five are calves. Forty litres per day are obtained from five lactating cows which are also in-calf. The milk supplements the studentsâ€™ diet and the manure boosts the school gardens. The project is economically viable as the educational value for which it was started has been achieved.
