40 years Shaver Brown - Kenya
Muguku Poultry Farm in Kikuyu has been keeping Shaver layers and Shaver Brown parent stock for the last 40 years.
Mr. Nelson Muguku Njoroge, farm owner, pioneered and developed the poultry industry in Kenya by dispersing the Shaver 579, later Shaver Brown commercial layers to all pockets of Kenya.
He followed his flocks and gave the necessary technical assistance to the farmers.
The farm and hatchery have expanded in the past years; his sons Daniel and Jonathan have joined the business.
In appreciation for his long time loyalty to the Shaver breed, a representative of Shaver offered him a gift at the end of a one day poultry seminar held in Kikuyu.
