IACCB, which commenced in February 2016, is a project within the Indonesia-Australia Partnership on Food Security in Red Meat and Cattle Sector. IACCB’s goal is to expand the commercial-scale beef cattle breeding industry in Indonesia. It does this by partnering with eight project partners in six Indonesia provinces, and testing three cattle breeding models (1) Integrated Oil Palm and Cattle Production; (2) Open Grazing and (3) Smallholder Cut and Carry.
Recent data suggets positive and sustainable commercial outcomes for both cattle breeding and palm productivity
Our Open Grazing model is showing good commercial prospetcs with low prodection costs and healthy offspring (weaner) growth in the open fields.
The Smallholder Cut and Carry Model is now showing the benefits from more intensive management, most notably with the highest calving rates aomngst all the models which provide a good basis for commercial viability. However,significat challenges around management of the farmer cooperatives and access to finance remain.
