Boost for Boer Goat Farming

Good news for Boer goat farming entrepreneurs.

Malaysian Agricultural Research and Development Institute, MARDI, has recently been successful in embarking a high-technology Boer goat breeding project, which will produce high quality breeds of Boer goats.

This will in turn enhance the marketability of Boer goat products, as well as increasing the local demand.

MARDI is a body that offers consultancy and advisory services to entrepreneurs and investors in the area of agriculture technology, techniques and management. Currently there are about 600 researchers engaged with MARDI in more than 30 offices nationwide. Since its inception 40 years ago, the institution has produced a few hundreds of new techniques and breakthrough applications but unfortunately so far only less than 10% of the new technology is being commercialized.

The new embryo technology for the Boer goats was made possible with the assistance of experts from South Africa, which has the most advanced and state-of-the-art goat breeding techniques in the world at the moment.

Ternakan Kambing Boer. Boer goat farming in MalaysiaCoined as the Advanced Reproductive Biotechnology (ARB), the technology application involves the technical production of embryos from quality cows and goats especially from mutton-producing continents such as South Africa and Australia (If you took Biology for SPM, look back the topic permanian beradas and pemindahan embrio). Under the project, 2 rearing centers had been set up; one in Pondok Tanjung, Perak which is the National Boer Goat Farm, and another in Negeri Sembilan, which is the National Feedlot Center.

Farmers also can hook themselves with the Agrobank (formerly Bank Pertanian Malaysia) and SME Bank for advice, consultation and financial help.

Boer goat is currently in high demand due to its high quality of mutton production and low fat content. They have been many stories of graduates and full time employees who quit their full time job in the corporate world and started highly successful Boer goat farming business in Malaysia.

    1. Saya ada menternak kambing kacukan boer, jamnapari dan angelonubeian sejak 2008. Saya ada melawat dipusat ternakan kambing boer Mardi di Kluang dan saya dapati teknologi yang dibuat oleh pihak Mardi adalah yang terbaik bagi penternak yang mempunyai modal yang banyak. Usaha-usaha ini boleh diteruskan demi kepentingan negara dalam bidang penternakan. Soalan saya, saya tidak mempunyai modal yang banyak bolehkah saya dapat secara separuh harga kambing boer betina yang pihak Mardi Kluang ” reject’ kerana saya akan khawinkan dengan kambing jantan ( Angelo) saya secara semulajadi dan berapa harganya? Kalau mampu saya beli segala pengangkutan saya urusakan sendiri.
