Meeting with NTB Governor to discuss expanding cattle production

In July 2019, Professor Dahlanuddin (pictured centre) discussed the opportunity to further develop leucaena as a protein source to support expansion of cattle farming with NTB Governor, Dr. Zulkieflimansyah (pictured second from right).

Leucaena-based cattle fattening has been adopted by more than 1200 farmers in NTB, yet is still considered to be used on a small scale. Efforts to produce leucaena on a large scale are needed to support a cattle feed manufacturing plant in NTB.

The CropCow project will support this process by encouraging more farmers to adopt leucaena-based cattle production systems as a key component of scaling out activity.
