What We Do

Traditional farming practices of burning off vegetation, using a wether yoke for oxen and turning the soil with a plough can cause harm to the soil, environment and animals. Oxen Clinic Uganda is introducing the innovative practices of conservation agriculture, efficient, locally produced farming tools and an improved neck yoke. The neck yoke improves the efficiency of the oxen by increasing their pulling power, reducing strain, increasing stamina, and reducing bruising and neck sores. Conservation agriculture uses a tool called a ripper to open a single line in the soil for planting and fertilizing. This preserves ground cover which improves soil structure, breaks up hard pan produced by ploughs, which increases water absorption and helps crops grow during low rainfall. By providing smallholder farmers with the ability to use these innovations, Oxen Clinic Uganda enables them to increase the productivity of their land, become more resilient to climate change, increase harvests and increase family incomes.

TRAINING CENTER

Oxen Clinic Uganda recently purchased 7 acres of land to build a training center near Gulu.  Having this property will allow us to have demonstration plots, train ox teams for sale, offer more extensive classes and host agricultural fairs.  Money is still needed to develop the property.  We need to put up fencing, animal shelters, classrooms, restrooms, a workshop and shelter for a security guard. Click below to find out more
