We exist to improve the lives of Kenyan farmers
Kenya Livestock Producers Association (KLPA) was formed in 2004 as an apex association for all livestock producers in Kenya. It draws its membership from individual farmers, farmer groups, cooperative societies, Self Help Groups, Community Based Organizations and corporate organizations in livestock agribusiness. The current membership stands at more than 1,500,000 farmers spread all over Kenya.
KLPA has participated in lobbying and advocacy on livestock policies and represented the interests of livestock farmers by being a member of Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM), Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KNCCI), Agricultural Industrial Network (AIN), Agriculture Council of Kenya (AgCK) and Kenya Agribusiness & Agro- industry Alliance (KAAA).
Our vision is to be a truly representative organization that advocates for the welfare of livestock producers in Kenya.
Our mission is to ensure improved livelihoods of Livestock producers by wide association through formulation of appropriate policy, stimulating reforms, promoting good livestock husbandry and production, collecting and disseminating useful information and promoting the general interests of members.
