Improving Technology Adoption and Sustainability of Programs to Increase Bali Cattle Productivity in West Nusa Tenggara Province, Indonesia

Yusuf A Sutaryono, T. Panjaitan and Dahlanuddin

Abstract

Programs to improve  productivity of Bali cattle should be based on result of research projects conducted locally, as they have been proven to better suit the socio economic and biophisical conditions. There have been many research projects conducted on improving productivity of Bali cattle in West Nusa Tenggara Province. These research outcomes provide options for local goverment authority to develop evidence based programs that better suit local conditions and can be expected to have greater impacts. Unfortunately, these radily available options have not been seriosly explored by local authority due to limited uderstanding of the comparative advantages of the innovations hence there were no adequate support from national goverment. some outstanding innovations have been demonstrated in small and medium scale in the farmer situation has proven to improve the cattle production capacity. An integrated village management system (IVMS) was introduced to match local biophysical conditions with biological cycle of the cattle and succeed in increasing the cattle productivity (Panjaitan, 2008): Dahlanuddin et al, 2011): Sutaryono, 2008; Dahlanuddin et al, 2014). Key to the success in the simplicity of the innovation so it can be adopted easily by the farmer to solve complex problem (Poppi et al, 2011). Download PDF
