According to the news agency, Tempo Interaktif, these two countries will invest in cattle fattening and yearlings in Indonesia.

“They have addressed their demands for beef to the Indonesian Producers and Feedlot Association (Apfindo),” said Anton last Friday (29/8) in Jakarta.

On a separate occasion, the Agriculture department’s Livestock Director General Tjeppy Daradjatun said that Middle Eastern countries preferred to import beef from Indonesia because the halal quality is more assured than that of other countries.

“The government has offered locations in Sumatra and Merauke for cattle yearlings and fattening,” he told Tempo.
