Supporting Indonesia’s commercial-scale beef cattle breeding industry
The Indonesia-Australia Commercial Cattle Breeding Program (IACCB) commenced in February 2016 as part of the Indonesia-Australia Partnership on Food Security in the Red Meat and Cattle Sector.
IACCB is piloting three different cattle breeding systems - Integrated Oil Palm and Cattle Production; Semi-intensive Grazing; and Smallholder Cut and Carry
Simple management protocols need to be followed and IACCB is developing these based on specific learnings through the projects.
The Partnership continues to help find ways to synergise commercial cattle breeding with palm plantation activities.
The increasingly limited land along with population growth has been frequently discussed in relation to the development of land-based investments, such as agriculture and livestock.
Integration pattern in breeding cows, for example within a plantation, has tremendous potential, sustainable and economical because it can produce local feeder cows that are cheaper than imported ones.
IACCB is managed by Coffey, a Tetra Tech company, and is funded by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
