we just been awarded with a lease on 3 acre of cattle farm complete with feedlots for 600 cows plus ample land and area for cattle grazing as well as for planting the cattle grass for feeding . The farm is located inside the oil palm plantation belonging to the Government Agency. The lease period is for the 3 year period till Dec 2020 with further extension to another 3 years. The farm is equipped with facilities such as Guard house, workers quarters but the conditions of these properties are in a dilapidated state due to the past vandalism , theft and disconnection of water and power suppliers.

Our serious problem now is to have the financial assistance both in the forms of grants and start up financing due the mobilization cost to restore the farm to its operational state is very costly. In addition we also need to have some equipment and machinery such as grass grinding machine, and supply of cattle feed for at least several months before we can start to produce our own cattle feed from the planted grass and from the processed oil palm leaves. These can be in the form of soft loan. Once ready for operate we thus require to buy and purchase stock of both the grown up and young cattle to house in the feed lot. This is the time if there is some kind of Government Grant it will come very handy. A GRANT for the amount equivalent to 100 matured cattle will be a good start.

We have approached several financial institutions and bank to get the financing for this project but were turned downed due to their stringent checks and evaluation and the frustrating part was the time taken to let us know their decision.

Our company vision on this project is to prove to the Government that whatever financial assistance or aid given to us will be channeled back to the Rakyat and nation in term of providing assistance to small holders who wish to embark in this similar business and also to bridge the present shortage of cattle meat in the country apart from charging a competitive price to the retailers . Once properly established , inshallah we also wish to go downstream into cattle meat related activities such as processed canned meat, cold storage meat and burgers and meat sausages,

We sincerely hope that the relevant parties concerned view our present plight seriously as time is an essence here , since we have recently received an ultimatum from the landlord of the farm to terminate our tenancy should we continue to delay our operation on the farm. Please call us and we will show all the documentary evidence , documents and we show you the location of the farm.

Best Regards
Sofian Abdullah
