2007: Goat and cattle breeding given importance

At the ECER launch in Kuala Terengganu on Oct 29, an MoU for a nucleus goat breeding research centre will be signed between the Department of Veterinary Services, Marditech Corporation Sdn Bhd and Terengganu Agrotech Development Corporation Sdn. Bhd.

To be located on a 900ha site, the centre will do research and development in goat breeding and husbandry and aims to boost income from the sector and reduce the country's import of mutton.

The farms will also double up as a resource centre and provide hands-on training for managers, professionals and researchers.
