Province Overview

  • Riau is a province with one of the lowest cattle population in Indonesia.
  • Palm oil industry plays a significant role in Riau, with plantations spread across almost all regencies and cities. This is reflected by the 40% approximate contribution of the palm oil industry to the provincial GDP. The vast area of palm oil plantations could be integrated with the cattle breeding business, lowering the cattle feed cost.
  • Domestic Investment Realization in Riau reached USD 2.44 Billion while Foreign Investment Realization reached USD 1.1 Billion in 2020.
  • In terms of seaport infrastructure, Dumai seaport and Rupat seaport have actively been utilized for cattle transport activities, both domestic and international.
  • Riau supplies to the cattle market in other provinces in Sumatra island. However, Riau also conducts cattle import from the other provinces in the Sumatra island.
  • Overall, Riau holds a great potential for cattle breeding business due to its beef supply deficit and the abundant grazing area available. The value chain, however, will require improvements in various aspects to support the local breeding business.

Stories from the Field

    To help palm oil farmers in acquiring revenue even though it is not harvest season for palm oils, PTPN V has set up a program to develop cattle fattening business within the area. For the long-term plan, they are planning to implement the SISKA model, where the cattle can find feed from the palm oil plantations but also provide manure as fertilizer.

Lesson Learned

  • Cattle auction in Riau are quite deserted because there were no qualified company

    In order to increase cattle population in the area, the government conducted an auction so capable company could compete and provide best cattle to be supplied. The auction was conducted twice in 2019, but from 41 out of 48 cattle companies that joined there were no winner because none of those companies were qualified enough.

As a province with high dependence to the palm oil industry, Riau has a high potential for further development and establishment of SISKA breeding models. 

Definitions

  1. Commercial feedlots are legal business entities with the purpose of increasing the weight of the cattle (BPS, Large and Small Livestock Establishment Statistics 2020).
  2. Commercial breedlots are legal business entities which focus on raising livestock to breed and produce new, young livestock with inherited traits (BPS, Large and Small Livestock Establishment Statistics 2020).
  3. Smallholders are small-scale cattle businesses, usually family owned, with varying cattle number per household. The average smallholder farmers' ownership in Indonesia is about 2 to 5 cattle per household, but it can reach 20 to 50 cattle per household in regions which cattle farming are a main source of livelihood, such as NTB and NTT (BPS STU 2014)
