The Kenya livestock Marketing Council (KLMC) is an umbrella organization of livestock producers and traders in arid and semi-arid areas of Kenya.

It was established in 2000 as a non-profit making services organization to counter the challenges the farmers are facing. KLMC is non political, non religious/commercial livestock pastoralists organization and partner with other stakeholders in achieving its objectives. KLMC is an affiliate of KENFAP, member of KEPSA, Kenya Chamber of Commerce, Joint Kenya and Arab Chamber of Commerce and North Eastern Africa Livestock Council (NEALCO).

The major aim of the KLMC is to promote livestock marketing and to improve pastoralists’ livelihood and reduce their vulnerability to the vagaries of weather and man-made disasters such as conflicts.

KLMC believes that pastoralism as the key economic activity in the Arid and Semi-arid area is a viable economic activity and can be harnessed to promote economic growth and development in those regions and reduce vulnerabilities.

KLMC recognized that the fundamental challenge facing the pastoralists is their inability to access better market for their livestock and livestock products. In order to achieve this noble goal, KLMC is working closely with other development partners and stakeholders to source for better market for livestock and livestock products and disseminate market information to producers and traders at the right time within the country, regionally and internationally
