The demand-supply shortage in beef is currently filled through imports of meat from various countries and import of Australian feeders for fattening. Indonesia is eager to produce more beef domestically, while also reducing import. A possible solution is increasing cattle breeding to produce feeders locally.
Indonesia-Australia Cattle Commercial Breeding (IACCB) Program is piloting four models of commercial cattle breeding with 8 private partners (corporations and cooperatives/farmer groups) in 5 provinces in Indonesia. The cattle breeding models include: 1) integrated oil palm and cattle production (SISKA); 2) a combination between oil palm and breedlot (Semi SISKA-Semi Breedlot); 3) open grazing, and 4) cut and carry as done traditionally by smallholders..
The Partnership - IACCB Webinar Series Volume 1, will discuss whether the 4 cattle breeding models are potential and commercially viable for Indonesia? It will also analyse opportunities and challenges for each breeding model?
