On July 25, 2010, the founder of AKL, George Kibanya, resigned from a top management job at the largest media house in East and Central Africa to start his most favorite passion that is rabbit farming. With only a laptop and a brain, he was determined to make it in the agribusiness venture whatever the odds. After approaching several supermarkets and hotels to sell the meat, it took only a short while before his clients started calling for a specific breed of rabbits for its patrons and soon the cheese moved. Today, George has trained personnel for the business. Lucy Mwangi has taken up the passion and is in charge of all operations of Alcare Group in Kenya. CANADA DORWAN GIANT RABBIT WAS BORN!

Birds are a very beautiful creation of nature. And ducks are also a very beautiful bird. There are many domestic duck breeds available around the world. Among those duck breeds, some are popular for meat production, some are famous for eggs production, some are good for exhibition purposes, some are raised as ornamental birds and some ducks are raised as pets. Ducks are classified into four groups; Bantam, Light, Medium and Heavy Weight. Domestic ducks are kept for specific purposes. Some ducks are good for meat, some are good for eggs.
With many years of working with rabbit farmers, we have collected many challenges farmers are going through. With the advent of many breeds of indigenous chicken into the country many chicken dealers, some unscrupulous, have approached farmers with the breeds almost confusing chicken farmers. We have gone out of our way to solicit for a quality indigenous chicken from Australia called AUSTRALOP chicken breed. This is a multipurpose chicken laying eggs and also ideal for meat as it grows to good weight at only 4 months.
