New animal feed plant in Dungun, Malaysia

The Terengganu Veterinary Services Department in Malaysia will build a new feed plant to process feed for cattle and goats at a cost of RM2 million (€433,000) in Durian Emas, Dungun, in the middle of this year.

State Director of Veterinary Services Dr Azizol Mohd Sharom said today the decision to build the factory was prompted by complaints from livestock breeders that they had difficulty getting feed.

The department tried supplying the feed to small and medium scale livestock breeders early this year at its branch offices but it could not accommodate the huge demand. He said the department had so far supplied more than 10 tonnes of the feed at RM30 (€6.50) per 50-kg bag, lower than the RM31per (€6.70) bag market price. The department garnered its supply of the feed directly from the producer, Felda Biopalma Seed, in Serting, Bahau, Negeri Sembilan, he said.
