KENDAL. “I hope this area can be a goat fattening center,” said Arif, one of the members of the Adil Sejahtera livestock group in Patebon Empowered Village, Kendal.
Goat fattening program, commonly called lemu wedhus, is the main program that is currently being promoted in the area of Rumah Zakat assisted Village.
The high demand for goat meat is one of the reasons for this program. Currently there are 20 rancher assisted by Rumah Zakat, five of them have received direct assistance in the form of goat seeds for fattening. Each rancher gets six goats.
According to Arif, his group’s goat can harvest in the fourth month after maintenance or when reaching the age of one year.
“Here we sell one year old goat, because this young goat is much sought in the market. Even now the demand is rising, “said Siti Munawaroh, Facilitator of Kendal Empowered Village.
