TT680: Oil Palm Based Beef Cattle Feed Pellet Formulation

Malaysia has met local demand for poultry meat and has been self sufficient since 1984. However, the ruminant sub sector which is dominated by beef is not well developed. Due to this situation, Malaysia has been facing difficulties in having a sustainable and sufficient supply of red meat throughout the year.Ruminant production is limited by issues related to feeding supply. The current emphasis is on the development of practical and low-cost feeds for various classes of ruminant species. Low utilisation of fibre resources and lack of practical techniques to convert local feedstuffs to quality feeds are some of the limitations in the development of feed for local ruminant livestock.
