Domestic beef value chains

The structure of the Indonesian beef industry is illustrated in Figure 4, and discussed in detailed throughout the report. In short, the vast majority of inputs (especially feed) is sourced on-farm, the production sector is dominated by household producers, cattle marketing is conducted predominantly through spot markets, cattle are slaughtered mainly by butchers in service slaughter plants, and most beef is distributed in generic form mainly through wet markets. However, next to this “low input” and disaggregated industry systems lies a series other systems, including more corporatized and collective systems (including feedlots, inter-island trading systems, abattoirs that buy cattle and limited sales of quality differentiated beef through supermarkets).
