Farmers at Ketiptergek irrigation Scheme Livestock keeping and crop farming are the main economic backbone of Baringo County. Being home to more 2 million livestock, a lot of emphasis is laid on this sector as a spring board towards economic empowerment.
Being a largely semi arid area, the county government has put lots of emphasis on irrigation as opposed to reliance on rainfall for crop production. This is characterized by establishment of over 3000 acres of irrigated land in 13 irrigation schemes where farmers grow cereals, fruits and vegetables in Ng’enyin, Emining, ketiptergek,Rebeko, Mukuyuni, Kapkelewa and other schemes.
To eradicate diseases occasioned by thick infection to livestock, the County government of Baringo has constructed more than 70 cattle dips and 182 rehabilitated and also 1440 litres of acarricides given across the County. Over 300 000 livestock vaccinated against ECF, Foot and Mouth and Rift Valley Fever(RVF).
Farmers have an easy time preparing for planting season using 20 tractors acquired by the county. Last year, 1536 acres of land was ploughed using the tractors by farmers across the county at a subsidized cost. Furthermore, 31 green houses have been issued and more than 60,810 kg of fertilizer distributed to farmers to boost crop yields.

Some of the tractors bought by the county governmentTo improve animal breeds for better production, 79 heifers, 39 pedigree bulls, 190 galla goats, 153 dorper sheep and 4,206 cockerels have been handed over to farmers across the County. For maximum benefits to be derived from farming activities, value addition is essential. In this regard, the County has supplied 14 milk coolers to dairy farmers in cooperatives, constructed 10 hay stores for pasture storage, availed 31 AI kits and Nitrogen semen containers to farmers.

In apiculture, 14,495 beehives have been given out to farmers to boost honey production. Support to fish farmers through the provision of pond liners, fingerlings and fish feed is going on as well. At least 51,130 farmers have been reached with agricultural extension services.
