  2. 2. The Malaysian Irony <ul><li>Malaysia has developed the </li></ul><ul><li>agricultural capacity to produce </li></ul><ul><li>60% </li></ul><ul><li>of the world’s Palm Oil </li></ul><ul><li>Yet </li></ul><ul><li>Cannot feed its own tiny population </li></ul><ul><li>of 27 million ! </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com

  7. 7. Overcame 4 biological problems of Grazing Animals in <ul><li>Humid Tropics </li></ul><ul><li>Heat Stress </li></ul><ul><li>High parasite & disease load </li></ul><ul><li>Poor nutrition of native grasses </li></ul><ul><li>Improved pastures get overgrown </li></ul><ul><li>Feeding PKC under intensive conditions </li></ul><ul><li>overcame ALL these problems </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com

  10. 10. Deep Tropical Gift Farming Model <ul><li>has discovered </li></ul><ul><li>the secret of economically producing </li></ul><ul><li>sheep, goats, cattle and milking cows </li></ul><ul><li>in the humid tropics </li></ul><ul><li>CLIMATE HOUSES </li></ul><ul><li>BEST BREEDS OF ANIMALS </li></ul><ul><li>& GRASS PLANTATIONS </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com

  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. 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
  14. 14. Malaysia’s Competitive Advantage WORLD’S HIGHEST RATE BIOMASS PRODUCTION <ul><li>Oil Palm in HUMID TROPICS produces </li></ul><ul><li>8-10 times </li></ul><ul><li>more oil per hectare compared to Soybean or Rapeseed in TEMPERATE CLIMATES </li></ul><ul><li>“ Due to high PHOTOSYNTHETIC rates resulting in ten times higher CO 2 absorption and oxygen emission rates than observed with soybean” </li></ul><ul><li>Ref: Yusof Basiron, Eur.J.Lipid Sci. Tecnol 109 (2007) 287-295 </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com
  15. 15. 60 to 70% COST of animal production <ul><li>is the feed cost </li></ul><ul><li>Malaysian Grass plantations </li></ul><ul><li>take 3 months to establish </li></ul><ul><li>Vast land in Sabah & Sarawak </li></ul><ul><li>Sheep in GIFT shelters are </li></ul><ul><li>easy care animals </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com
  16. 16. 3 TIMES CHEAPER FEED for sheep, goats, cattle, dairy cows <ul><li>FEEDLOT COMPARISON </li></ul><ul><li>Rozi Grass/kg protein </li></ul><ul><li>RM1.90 </li></ul><ul><li>PKC Based pellets /kg protein </li></ul><ul><li>RM6.70 </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com
  17. 17. 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
  18. 18. Revenue per Hectare Lambs versus Palm Oil <ul><li>1 ha Grass Plantation required to maintain 82 breeding ewes and produce 170 lambs per year </li></ul><ul><li>170 LAMBS SOLD (Ram lamb RM350, Ewe lamb RM650) </li></ul><ul><li>RM85,000 /ha /yr </li></ul><ul><li>PALM OIL 21 ton/ha @ RM600/ton </li></ul><ul><li>RM12,600 /ha /yr </li></ul><ul><li>CONCLUSION: Lambs generate 7 times more Revenue </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com
  19. 19. CONCLUSION <ul><li>Malaysia’s Deep Tropical </li></ul><ul><li>GIFT Farming Model </li></ul><ul><li>is now being recognised as a </li></ul><ul><li>world agricultural breakthrough </li></ul><ul><li>It is time for Malaysian Scientists </li></ul><ul><li>Government and Industry </li></ul><ul><li>to enthusiastically support it </li></ul><ul><li>Last week Minister of Agriculture briefed </li></ul>www.mohdpeterdavis.com
  20. 20. 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
  21. 21. 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
