This EPP, led by the Department of Veterinary Services (DVS), aims to secure a consistent
and affordable source of live animals required for breeding, placement in feedlots,
and dairy operations over the next decade. This initiative was expanded to review
potential areas in agriculture that could raise additional revenue for the country.
This EPP is the last component of the EPP Livestock: Full
Value Chain with two other livestock EPPs (EPP 5: Cattle Integration in Oil Pam
Estates and EPP 12: Expansion of Cattle in Feedlots) to achieve a sustainable local
Participating companies of this EPP will also be given first rights to supply live
animals to companies under the livestock EPPs. For example, if the Government needs
to procure cattle for companies under EPP 5, participating companies under EPP 16
will be offered the first bid to supply the cattle.
The DVS will continue monitoring the anchor companies under this EPP while incorporating
the feedlots into EPP Livestock: Full Value Chain to ensure a complete integration
of the value chain. The target is to achieve RM60 million in revenue generated from
this project in 2013.
- This EPP’s anchor companies have surpassed a target revenue of RM60 million, generating RM79.6 million.
