The Netherlands should cooperate with Nigeria in the development of livestock models.

Michelle Diehlen, deputy ambassador of the Netherlands in Nigeria, this is known during a press conference on Friday in Lagos.

The deputy ambassador said that the partnership was in the background of President Mohammad Bukhari's visit to the Netherlands in June to collect information on successful pastoralism.

He said: "The issue of cattle breeding among other things was discussed during President Bukhari's visit to the Netherlands.

"We discussed with the Ministry of Agriculture how we can develop the process of growing cattle without having to walk through the farm of other people.

"This is a problem that is associated with many things, but mostly cattle spends these long trips because they need food.

"If you can produce this food in one place, then the cattle will not have to walk on the farms of other people to graze.

"This is what is basically international, because you need to find the right food for animals that grows in the country," Dylen said.

He also welcomed the Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Audu Ogbe's visit to Kenya, to explore ways to produce cow food in Nigeria.

"I understand that they were in Kenya to understand what can be done in terms of nutrition.

"The Netherlands is also attracting all experts to understand how we can develop a model of farmers who have a cow in one place.

"Although this is not rocket science, it will require all parties to make it work," he said.

He also talked about investments made by the Netherlands in the agriculture of Nigeria.

"The Netherlands has mainly invested about 35 million euros in various aspects of the value chain in Nigeria, which includes; company investment; investment in technical training; investment in exchange programs and others.
