Understanding the beef cattle market chain in East Kalimantan

A team of researchers from the PalmCow market chain research team, including Christie Chang, Sionita Gunawan, Trie Igap Mahendri and Nyak Ilham, have recently been investigating the cattle sector in East Kalimantan.

In January 2019, the team visited the Panajam Paser Utara district, Balikpapan and Samarinda meeting a variety of sector stakeholders including BPTP, Dinas Peternakan, traders, slaughterhouses and quarantine stations.

Their goal was to gain a better understanding of the issues faced by these stakeholders, and opportunities for the future. This knowledge has allowed the PalmCow team to build on their understanding of the cattle market chain in East Kalimantan, and will have an impact on market chain research as well as other IndoBeef research activities.
