A step inside Gladys Boss Sholei's Multi-million Dairy Empire in Uasin Gishu (Photos)

Former Chief registar at the Judiciary and current Women Rep for Uasin Gishu Gladys Boss Sholei is among Kenyan politicians who have invested heavily in dairy farming.

The Ruto ally owns a farm which is located somewhere in Uasin Gishu where she rares a pedigree of animals which include Friesian, Holsteins, Guernsey and Brown Swiss.

Her dairy cows are housed in well-built facilities that are designed with their well-being in mind.

The dairy cows are segregated into cubicles from the smallest calf to the most pregnant cow. This allows her to keep track of the lactation and feeding cycle.

The cubicles can accommodate more than two calves who have been separated from their mother three days after birth.

The farm has installed a synchronized mobile application to help monitor each cow's feeding and milk production schedule. This software is especially useful because it allows her to keep an eye on the animals without having to physically be present.

The farm has its own nitrogen tank, which stores semen and selects gender in advance, ensuring that pregnant cows will give birth to females.

The best-performing cow produces 40 to 45 litres per day, whereas the worst-performing cow produces only 25. They can milk and sell up to 1,500 litres of milk per day on a good day, selling the milk to KCC, Brookside, and ATM machines. 

In addition to high-tech computerized milkers, the farm includes two 500-litre refrigerators, which the mother of four avers has been really beneficial in keeping the milk; otherwise, they would have lost a significant amount of milk.

She has also hired professionals to assist her in running the dairy farm.
