Kenya animal genetic resources centre (kagrc) profile h.k wamukuru

  1. 1. By Dr. Wamukuru H.K -CEO. 1
  2. 2. The Kenya Animal Genetic Resources Centre (KAGRC), formally, CAIS, and was established in 1946 through a Gazette Notice No. 557 as a semen production and distribution Centre. It is located 15 km from City Centre (West of the Nairobi City), and has its HQs in Lower Kabete in Nairobi. The centre acquired full autonomy as a State Corporation, through Kenya Gazette Notice No. L.N. 110 of 5th September 2011. 2

  5. 5. The livestock sector significantly contributes to the Kenyan economy (entire national GDP (10%)) and overall socio-economic development in the Country. In agriculture the livestock sub-sector contributes to just below 50% of the total agricultural GDP and About 30% of the marketed agricultural products. The potential is great. The Country needs to unlock the latent potential existing in the Arid and Semi Arid (ASAL) lands of Kenya which account to about 80% of the Country the current contribution of the livestock sector. 5
  6. 6. The new constitution clearly recognizes veterinary Services as vital to development of both County and National Governments. Appropriate policies and legal framework to support development and coordination of animal breeding programmes are being put place. This will strengthen the role of breed Societies, farmers and other stakeholders in animal improvement activities and will also apply equitably to all animal species 6
  7. 7. KAGRC works in close collaboration with other breeding organizations such as Kenya Stud Book, Dairy Recording Services of Kenya and Livestock Recording Centre, Research Organizations, Universities, international entities, community Based Organizations (CBOs) and individual farmers. GENOMIC Selection of our Bull Dams, the Bulls themselves and their heifers, and Contract Mating Program for efficient performance of the Centre are routine, continuous processes. 7
  8. 8. KAGRC envisages to undertake organizational adjustment thus;-animal recording and genetic evaluation) and wide stakeholder’s scope. (breeders and livestock keepers). Noting global interdependency in the utilization of animal genetic resources , hence the need to develop KAGRC as a reference laboratory for certification, testing of semen embryos, and related livestock reproduction. Thus ,the Centre participates in Public Private Partnership and hence, the National planning must always ensure the long term supply of public good and its sustainability. 8
  9. 9. There have been challenges in the conservation, management and utilization of the AnGR emanating from low human, infrastructural and professional capacities. The centre is yet to attain all the requisite ISO standards, especially Laboratory Best practices, ISO 17025; however necessary resources (own) are being mobilized towards the same. KAGRC has put in place Quality Management System to improve its performance and be in line with the best and modern practices and has been issued with the ISO 9001:2008 certificate. 9

  24. 24. KAGRC plays a leading role in improving the productivity and competitiveness of Kenya’s livestock products through provision of high quality genetic material for local and export consumption. Capital investment is a requisite, and goes hand in hand with Relevant Human Capacity building, on job training, Benchmarking and collaboration with close Stakeholders. There is also need for adequate office Space to be created, Refurbish the existing Laboratory and put up two more state of the art laboratories to accommodate the envisaged scientific expansion. 24
  25. 25. The demand for bull semen has been increasing. In the year 2010 the Centre distributed over 659,000 doses of bull semen which was the highest ever since A.I services were privatized. The current national Bull Semen demand is estimated to be at 1.2 million Straws. The Centre’s marketing structure through the Agents has also contributed to the increased demand by making the product readily available to the end user. This is a challenge to the centre and hence calls for urgent strategic measures to mitigate on the same. 25

  36. 36. 36 STRENGTHS. Available Resources-the Center has land, live Bulls and human capacity Base. Adequate Water and Electricity are available The Centre has over 15 collaborators in the quest to achieve its goals. The mother ministry of LD and Treasury are ready to assist. WEAKNESSES Inefficient breeding communication system. The e- breeding platform has not yet been operationalized due to high cost. Dilapidated infrastructure and Equipments. UN- surveyed centre’s land- lack of ownership documents. Inadequate hay for the bulls. Hay fields needs to be renewed. Lack of capacity to fully exploit the local market and export market. Inadequate number of proven bulls for semen production. Inadequate capacity for semen production and conservation. OPPORTUNITIES The Kenya Market is readily available and Demand for KAGRC’S products is high. Dairy Sector Market growth Spars Centre’s confidence in Business Availability. THREATS The importation of unqualified semen depresses the farmers efforts and morale. Outbreak out Notifiable Disease. Attempts to transfer KAGRC’s public ‘goods’ to private hands. Business Competition from other germplasm importers.
  37. 37. The Commitment of the Government and Bilateral partners to create Germplasm Preservation and Conservation of Animal genetic materials that addresses Continued financial support for the Centre’s depend on the delivery of documented benefits of sustainability, as does emphasis on M&E. 37
  38. 38. Kenya Animal Genetic Resources Centre will be duty bound to make an overall judgment about the effectiveness of the completed programs (summative evaluation), Generate knowledge about good practices (lessons learned). M&Es are integral tools for managing and assessing the efficiency and effectiveness of investments in the Centre. 38
