A business consulting firm, CBI Innovations Limited (CBiIL), has vaccinated 2,000 cows in Abuja against some key seasonal diseases.
The exercise is aimed at making the animals healthier thereby boosting dairy production.
The vaccination, which was sponsored in conjunction with Nestle Nigeria PLC and 2scale, a company that specialises in offering support services to agribusiness, was carried out at the herders grazing reserve in Paikon-Kore in Gwagwalada Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
