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.
Three out of four SISKA (Breeding cattle in Oil Palm Plantations) partners are expanding their herd, via selecting productive heifers and bulls from their Year 1 progeny, and through significant investments in more breeding stock. Their aim is to achieve improved economies of scale.
There is nothing more important than increasing the quantity of high-quality pasture in an open-grazing model. After several trials, our open grazing partner CAP has successfully established 15 ha of improved pasture on their 100-ha farm.
IACCB has proven that strong fertility of Brahman Cross under tropical conditions can be achieved in small-holder breedlots, but this is highly dependent on intensive and strong management.
