The dairy industry profession involves the production of high quality milk and milk products at a profit. Liberalization of the milk based industry in Kenya has attracted on-farm processing. On-farm processing reduces post-harvest losses and produces milk products of higher quality as milk is processed shortly after harvesting. For these entrepreneurs to succeed there is need for graduates with knowledge of milk production at farm level and dairy plant processing operations management.
