According to Ouko the county government indicated that it had purchased a cow at Sh 3.7 million since he only saw one cow when he visited the county offices.
However in a rejoinder, Agriculture Chief Executive (CEC) Gilchrest Okuom insisted that the county bought 27 cows, contrary to Ouko's claims that the whereabouts of the 26 animals cannot be established.
He said that the county has its records proving that the animals were bought at Sh136, 900 each and distributed to five of the six sub counties.
He added that the exercise to avail cows to farmers is ongoing and 180 new farmers across Muhoroni, Kisumu West and Nyakatch have received their cows.
