Indonesia-Australia Commercial Cattle Breeding Program


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.

SISKA Partners are Expanding Their Cattle Breeding Enterprises and Diversifying into Growing and Fattening of Their Progeny

Our SISKA partners are finalizing their scale-up plans using the IACCB developed CALFIN - cow-calf modelling and planning tool. PT Buana Karya Bhakti (BKB) in South Kalimantan and PT Kalteng Andinipalma Lestari (KAL), both located in Central Kalimantan, plan to double their current herd numbers through selection of good female progeny and by acquiring new breeding bulls. Our semi-breedlot/semi-SISKA partner, SUJ, in Lampung Province, is also expanding its herd and investing in additional breedlot calving infrastructure.

Open-grazing Ranch Invests in Pasture Development

PT Cahaya Abadi Petani (PT CAP), our Open Grazing partner located in South Kalimantan, has 120ha of grazing area, and is now investing in 30 ha of improved pastures and legumes to minimize feeder production costs. Grasses include 23 ha of Mulatto grass and Paspalum ubon, 2 ha Brachiaria Humidicola and about 4 ha of king grass and shrub legumes Leucaena and Glyricidia.

Small-holder Commercial Sustainability Very Dependent on Integration with Current Farming System

Our small-holder partners, Koperasi Petani Ternak Maju Sejahtera (KPT) in South Lampung and Sentra Peternakan Rakyat Mega Jaya (SPR) in Bojonegoro have shown that integration of cattle breeding activities into their existing farming system is key to the success of the business model. Further constraints to commercial sustainability and growth include access to labour and other resources.

Semi SISKA - Semi Breedlot - a Profitable Alternative

PT Superindo Utama Jaya (SUJ), in Lampung Province is expanding its cattle infrastructure, with another 160 calving pens, enabling the stockmen to separate highly pregnant cattle for calving. Heifers and calves remain in the pens for a couple of weeks to ensure low calf mortality rates.
