The Malaysian livestock industry is an important and integral component of the agricultural sector, providing gainful employment and producing animal protein as food for the population. The government has laid out plans to further develop the industry towards achieving self-sufficiency level specifically in the ruminant sector; and a national feedlot project came into the picture.
The National Feedlot Center which is located on an earmarked 5,000 acres of land in Gemas, Negeri Sembilan is the envisioned centre of production for beef and beef products. As a High Impact Project under the Ninth Malaysia Plan, National Feedlot Center project will be instrumental in attaining the 40% self-sufficiency for beef production by 2010, as targeted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-based Industries.
Our company, National Feedlot Corporation Sdn Bhd which has been entrusted as the integrator of the project will actively advance and promote the interests of the feedlot industry; develop environmental and animal welfare standards, quality assurance and training programs and working to keep feedlot operators abreast of emerging best management practices.
NFC will stand as a fully integrated player in the Malaysian livestock industry. Within its team of key people, NFC has extensive and invaluable experience of this industry particularly in the cattle livestock and in the position to be the market leader in beef-cattle farming in Malaysia.
