KUALA TERENGGANU: A RM2mil goat-breeding facility will be established in the Serating Permanent Food Production Park in Marang to make the East Coast Economic Region (ECER) one of the country’s largest mutton producers.
Operated by Cosmopal Sdn Bhd, the facility is part of the ECER plan to establish Terengganu as a goat and mutton hub.
The 30ha farm currently has 1,400 Jamnapari goats, and each of its three enclosures can house 440 goats.
While infrastructure is being improved, Cosmopal’s target is to raise its breeding livestock to 4,000 goats, in response to increasing demand for good livestock.
Since its incorporation in 2000, Cosmopal has supplied more than 10,000 Jamnapari goats to farmers across Malaysia. Each goat costs between RM750 to RM850.
