THE
PROJECT Of 1000 Cows in the pasture of the Napu Plain of Poso District, Central
Sulawesi Province, which was initiated by Governor Longki Djangola, threatened
to fail. Because, since 2018, the tender for the procurement of cow seeds for
this program failed.

It
is the Center for Veterinary Medicine (BBVet) Maros, South Sulawesi, believed
to be supplying 1,000 cows. The cow’s seeds will be distributed at the Napu
plain grazing location in Poso Regency, precisely in the villages of Watutau
and Alipu Lembah Napu. Herding techniques through community groups.

BBVet
Maros, one of eight UPTs under the Directorate General of PKH which has the
task of carrying out observation and identification of diagnoses, veterinary
testing and animal products, as well as the development of techniques and
methods of investigation, diagnosis and veterinary testing based on Minister of
Agriculture Regulation No. 54 / Permentan / OT.140 / 5/2013.

According
to the plan, Central Sulawesi will get cattle seed rations from the type of Australian
Commercial Cross (ACC) in the form of Brahman Cross cattle, the aid will flow
through the Director General of Livestock and Animal Health of the Ministry of
Agriculture which is planned to be farmed in Alitupu Village. Then a grazing
site was built in Watutau Village, Lore Piore District.

Supposedly,
cattle assistance at the beginning of 2018 has arrived. But until mid-2019 it
hasn’t been realized. Reported by Portalsulawesi.com, said that the cattle
procurement project that was auctioned at the Ministry of Animal Husbandry
through the Maros Veterinary Center (BBVet Maros) failed tender.

The
failure of the tender was justified by the Head of Production and Nursing
Section of the Central Sulawesi Provincial Plantation and Livestock Service
Office, Ir Mura M.si. According to him, the failure to fulfill the 1000 cattle
quota for pasture in Watutau Village due to failed tender at UPT BBVet Maros
South Sulawesi. “We can only surrender when the thousand cattle
procurement project fails to tender, even though the grazing location has been
built by the government,” he said.

The
location of the grazing land of Watutau Village, Lore Piore Sub-district was
built in an area of around 800 hectares, a number of facilities have been built
including Gudang Pakan, Shelter, guardrail and planting of Elephant grass as
animal feed.

The
facilities that have been built have not yet been able to be enjoyed or
redundant because they only have 10 cows that were obtained from livestock
assistance in 2018 sourced from the Central Sulawesi Regional Budget. In fact,
the project of planting animal feed in the form of Elephant Grass (brachiaria
decumbens) in some places did not show encouraging results, most of these
plants died.

In
fact, the elephant grass planting project consumed a budget of Rp. 172,800,000
from the first APBD I in 2018, the project was planning at that time to plant
elephant grass on 86,000 polybacks with a planting area of approximately two
hectares.

The
failure of the 2018 Cattle Project in the Napu Plain greatly impacts the
long-term central government’s plan, namely the National Meat Self-Sufficiency
Program in 2045. Even the Governor Longki Djanggola’s program on the 2021
Central Cattle Year 2021 program will not be fulfilled.

The
grant assistance program in 79 groups of farmers with 785 head of cattle in 13
regencies / cities in Central Sulawesi 2018 has not guaranteed the 1000 Cattle
program in 2021 to succeed. There are still groups that commercialize cattle
assistance after donated to groups of cattle recipients receiving livestock
assistance.
“We,
as the government, cannot do much when the recipients of the donation grant
sell the aid, we can only encourage the livestock to be raised, not to sell
it,” said Mura.

As
is known, the planned location of cattle farms in Alitupu Village, Napu Valley,
Poso Regency has been heralded by the Central Sulawesi Provincial Government
through Disbunak since 2017. Even Governor Longki has directly observed savanna
fields in Alitupu Village on November 26, 2017, at that time Longki was
accompanied by the Head, accompanied by Nahyun Biantong who is now retired. **
