Kota Baharu based company Jihad Ternak aims to be the largest Jamnapari goat producers in the region by 2010. They commenced operations early this year with 2,000 Jamnapari goats in a 100-hectare area in Rong Chenok and already are having enquiries from Saudi Arabia, Brunei, Taiwan and China.


They also aim to produce 200 litres of milk, one metric tonne of meat and increase herd by 100 goats a month next year to reach 8,000 goats. With facilities that include 2 large barns and 4 smaller ones, they will expand to breed more goats with target of 20,000 animals by 2010 to supply increasing demands.

Future of Goat Industry in Malaysia
by: Anonymous

I believed that the Malaysian goat industry is still dominated by the traders with the support of the Government. Although the statistics shown that the Self Sufficiency Level is less than 15% but no concrete effort had been made by the agencies to expedite the goat breeding industries. As a start the Government can encourage this industries by placing more forward order to local goat breeders whereby these goats had been born locally and acclimatized to local condition. The Government should plan the forward orders so that the local breeder can have reasonable planning and delivery schedule rather than ad-hoc basis. Second, the financial institution should assist by giving easy loan scheme to these goat breeders. The collateral can be the land. All must work together to see the goat industry grow in Malaysia.

Goats for Sale
by: Anonymous

We heed our Governments urge for Malaysians to venture into the goats business.We have over 300 goats. 70 Male goats are ready for sale. Suprisingly no buyers? What happens to the statistics publised by the Ministry concernd on the shortages of goats? Is it another scam by their advisors to bring in more goats and sell to the Government?
Help us to market our Goats (Males only) to stay alive.
