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.
Presentation of the positive commercial results from IACCB’s SISKA partner projects generated great interest from the 240 delegates attending Integrated Cattle – Oil Palm Production Conference Jakarta (ICOP- 23rd October). Convened by the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) and the Partnership, ICOP explored the latest developments in cattle - oil palm integration.
The commercial success of BX cattle breeding implemented by PT CAP, the IACCB Open Grazing partner in South Kalimantan, has not gone un-noticed. The ranch in Tanah Laut Regency attracts government and banking sector officials eager to learn how to help address systemic challenges in the sector.
Since passing Commercial Viability Assessments (CVA) some time ago our two small-holder partners, Koperasi Petani Ternak Maju Sejahtera in South Lampung and Sentra Peternakan Rakyat Mega Jaya in Bojonegoro have proven to be able to consistently manage their BX cattle herds resulting in improved livestock productivity and reduced costs contributing to commercial viability of the enterprise. In line with the collaborative agreement, IACCB handed over the cattle to both organisations to be managed independently with IACCB providing some technical back-up services.
