ACTNews, TASIKMALAYA – A sheep and goat farm stands in Cintabodas Village, Culamega Subdistrict, Tasikmalaya Regency. It is Global Wakaf ACT’s Waqf-Based Livestock Barn from which quality goats and sheep are supplied to those who perform Qurbani through Global Qurban-ACT.

Cintabodas is one of the villages in Tasikmalaya Regency. The cool temperature makes it comfortable and suitable to raise animals.

Rosman, one of the administrators of LTW Tasikmalaya, said that the LTW includes sheep and goat breeding and fattening facilities. Special fodder is given to the animals to produce the best quality livestock for the upcoming Eid Al-Adha.

"Since the goats and sheep are young, we provide them with nutrition-packed fodder and special care to these animals to make sure that we will get the best quality Qurbani animals for Eid Al-Adha. We guarantee it because we took care of the animals ourselves," said Rosman, Wednesday (12/11).

LTW Tasikmalaya is one of the suppliers of Qurbani animals for Global Qurban-ACT. Every year, thousands of Qurbani animals from LTW Tasikmalaya are sent to various regions, especially poverty-stricken and disaster-affected areas. In the LTW, sacrificial animals belonging to those taking part in the Progressive Qurbani and Intensive Qurbani programs are well-cared until the upcoming Eid.

For the dwarf elephant grass used for the fodder, they take it from the farm that the LTW manages. The management of the grass plantation also involves the surrounding communities, economically empowering them. []
