EPP 12.0 - Expansion of Cattle in Feedlots

This EPP aims to establish 300 satellite farms to support anchor companies involved in feedlot operations, with the aim of improving the national self-sufficiency level for beef. Anchor companies are tasked with overseeing operations of the entire value chain involved in providing feedlot services while managing the integration and consolidation of downstream processes.

Improvements are made in the downstream process through the enforcement of abattoir certification, cold-chain delivery of chilled cuts, promotional exercises to create market awareness of imported buffalo meat versus beef, and the development of other beef by-products.

In 2013, this EPP targets to place another 20,000 heads of cattle on feedlots in existing satellite farms.

This EPP, led by the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS), collaborates with EPP 5: Cattle Integration in Oil Pam Estates and EPP 16: Overseas Acquisition/Joint Venture of Cattle Farms to establish a fully integrated livestock value chain.

At present, FELDA Gedung Makanan Negara represents the sole champion of this EPP. 


  • 7,241 cattle were feedlotted in 2013.
  • 10 abattoirs located around Malaysia were upgraded to meet requirements under the Exporter Supply Chain Assurance System implemented by Australia.
