    • “ Deep Tropical” GIFT Farming Model can feed Malaysia Presentation to Petronas 14 August 2008 22 SLIDES www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • The Malaysian Irony
      • Malaysia has developed the
      • agricultural capacity to produce
      • 60%
      • of the world’s Palm Oil
      • Yet
      • Cannot feed its own tiny population
      • of 27 million !
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • History of Malaya-Malaysian Animal Production in Humid Tropics
      • For 500 years have been using the same agricultural model
      • European type Grazing
      • For cattle, cows, sheep, goats
      • BUT FAILS REPEATEDLY
      • Industrialised Malaysia Still Imports:-
      • 77% Beef 92% Mutton 95% Milk
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • “ Malaysia produces ONLY HALF of its current food consumption
      • using its own resources ”
      • “ In the world economic collapse
      • Malaysia will face
      • mass starvation far worse than the Japanese Occupation ”
      • March 2002 National Conference
      • Mohd Peter Davis & Makhdzir Mardan, UPM
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Without Imports Malaysia’s food industries will collapse
      • CONSUMPTION PRODUCTION
      • 2007 (with NO imports)
      • Beef 5.1kg/person/yr 1.1kg/person/yr
      • Mutton 0.7 0.06
      • Pork 5.0 0.2
      • Chicken 33.2 0.6 ?
      • Eggs 16.0 0.3 ?
      • TOTAL 60.0 kg 2.3 kg (estimate)
      • TRUE self-sufficiency for Meat & Eggs
      • Less than 4%
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • 1989-1997 Universiti Putra Malaysia Basic Research Intensive Sheep Production www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Overcame 4 biological problems of Grazing Animals in
      • Humid Tropics
      • Heat Stress
      • High parasite & disease load
      • Poor nutrition of native grasses
      • Improved pastures get overgrown
      • Feeding PKC under intensive conditions
      • overcame ALL these problems
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Sheep Growth Rates
      • 15 th to 20 th Century
      • Grazing kampung/plantation 45g/day
      • 1995 UPM’s PKC Feedlot 159g/day
      • 2007 GIFT Farming Model 250g/day
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • 2 month old DORPER LAMBS 18kg each GIFT Farming System Malaysia 38kg market weight at 4months. Meat value RM522 www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Deep Tropical Gift Farming Model
      • has discovered
      • the secret of economically producing
      • sheep, goats, cattle and milking cows
      • in the humid tropics
      • CLIMATE HOUSES
      • BEST BREEDS OF ANIMALS
      • & GRASS PLANTATIONS
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • The GIFT GRASS PLANTATION 80 hectares in Muadzam Shah, Pahang Malaysian climate supports world’s highest rate of Biomass Production Brachiaria Rozi www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • ROZI grass Grows 3-feet in 35 days (1 inch per day) in a Plantation GRASS CUT AT 35 DAYS IS PERFECT FOR FEEDING TO RUMINANTS Grass can be cut ten times per year for three years before ploughing www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Malaysia’s Competitive Advantage WORLD’S HIGHEST RATE BIOMASS PRODUCTION
      • Oil Palm in HUMID TROPICS produces
      • 8-10 times
      • more oil per hectare compared to Soybean or Rapeseed in TEMPERATE CLIMATES
      • “ Due to high PHOTOSYNTHETIC rates resulting in ten times higher CO 2 absorption and oxygen emission rates than observed with soybean”
      • Ref: Yusof Basiron, Eur.J.Lipid Sci. Tecnol 109 (2007) 287-295
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • 60 to 70% COST of animal production
      • is the feed cost
      • Malaysian Grass plantations
      • take 3 months to establish
      • Vast land in Sabah & Sarawak
      • Sheep in GIFT shelters are
      • easy care animals
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • 3 TIMES CHEAPER FEED for sheep, goats, cattle, dairy cows
      • FEEDLOT COMPARISON
      • Rozi Grass/kg protein
      • RM1.90
      • PKC Based pellets /kg protein
      • RM6.70
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Malaysia’s Deep Tropical GIFT Farming Model WORLD COMPARISON Far Superior to Grazing System 1 hectare of grass plantation can maintain 82 Breeding sheep and produce 170 lambs Compared to 25 sheep per hectare On Best New Zealand grazing farms www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Revenue per Hectare Lambs versus Palm Oil
      • 1 ha Grass Plantation required to maintain 82 breeding ewes and produce 170 lambs per year
      • 170 LAMBS SOLD (Ram lamb RM350, Ewe lamb RM650)
      • RM85,000 /ha /yr
      • PALM OIL 21 ton/ha @ RM600/ton
      • RM12,600 /ha /yr
      • CONCLUSION: Lambs generate 7 times more Revenue
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • CONCLUSION
      • Malaysia’s Deep Tropical
      • GIFT Farming Model
      • is now being recognised as a
      • world agricultural breakthrough
      • It is time for Malaysian Scientists
      • Government and Industry
      • to enthusiastically support it
      • Last week Minister of Agriculture briefed
      www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • CUT GRASS EVERY 35 DAYS FOR 3 YEARS Fed to sheep, goats, cattle, milking cows in cool climate sheds GREAT increase in Meat and Milk production World Breakthrough : Malaysian Grass Plantations DEEP TROPICAL GIFT FARMING MODEL 3 TIMES MORE PRODUCTIVE Than Best New Zealand Grazing Farms IN BRIEF www.mohdpeterdavis.com
    • Malaysian Rubber production 2008 Estimate 1.19m tonnes from 973,000 hectares RM4.27/kg (SMR20 price Dec 2008) Therefore present value of Rubber 1.19m tonnes x RM4.27/kg = RM5.08 billion per year From 973,000 hectares Rubber Income RM5222 per year per hectare plantation (at RM4.27/kg) GIFT Lamb Production (Potential income selling young Ewe lambs RM650, Ram lambs RM350) Weaned Lamb Income RM85,000 /yr/hectare grass plantation Conclusion (Dec 2008): GIFT lamb production will be 16 times more profitable per hectare compared to rubber www.mohdpeterdavis.com
