ANIMAL WALFARE

 

Tumaluntung village is part of Kauditan sub-district North Minahasa. Based on secondary data
(bps 2019) collected in Kauditan sub-district there are- cattle: 42.255 cow beef, 235 goats, 4.648
pigs. Poultry: 16 512 domestic chicken, 40.000 laying hens, 780.000 broilers, 591 ducks.

Since 2017 to date, we have been facilitating the local community groups in Tumaluntung village
including livestock farmers. About 100 livestock owned by 1 farmer in project with unpleasant
aroma arose complaint. To reduce the pollution, we help livestock owners build two biogas
reactor units in each of 10 cubic and 6.5 cubic with zero waste principle. The animal feces as
reactor outputs is used as organic fertilizer, while the biogas supplies to 10 beneficiary houses as
LPG replacement. But it turned out that the existence of the Biogas reactor was not enough to
overcome the existing problems.

In 2021, with the support of the CSR fund PT.TIV Airmadidi-Danone, we helped renovation of the
cage which was originally made of wood and dirty ground into several cage unit buildings from
concrete with better sanitation. However, the cage conditions remain less healthy / dirty because
of a lack of understanding and knowledge of livestock owners. This is not good for the health of the
livestock.

In North Sulawesi Indonesia we have not found any farm welfare campaign or program,
therefore, this project work built foundational for advancing animal welfare goals in
North Sulawesi carried out by youth as a vibrant community starting from Tumaluntung village
North Minahasa.

OBJECTIVES 

The aims of this project program are:

(1). To raise a vibrant community from village youth as animal welfare agents.

(2) To ensure community paradigm change, treat their animal properly including facilities and foods.

ACTIVITES & TIMESCALE:

  • ​Month 1 - Initial Preparation.

1. Initial program socialization. For the successful implementation of the project, it is important to receive acknowledgment and support from the related government. Therefore, before the project started, Manengkel Solidaritas conducted initial socialization
to present the programs to the government and community at the village level and to the North Minahasa District Animal Husbandry Department.
2. Establish a Youth Group for animal farm welfare field facilitation. This project facilitated at least 2 meetings to establish the animal farm welfare group consisting of village youth. The group was validated by Village Decree.

  • ​Month 2 - Initial data collected.

1. Data monitoring collection training. For having an effective sustainable animal farm welfare management based on science, the project will involve the youth group in the local animal farm data collection. Before implementation, the project coordinator provided the
monitoring data sheets and trained the youth group on how to fill the data sheet and how to do data collection properly, including data analysis. This required at least 3 days of training. This aimed to raise awareness of youth about the importance of their village animal farm welfare.
2. Data collection. After the data collection training, the Project Coordinator together with the youth group did field surveying. This required supporting equipment such as stationary, camera, GPS, as well as face mask, hand sanitizer-covid 19 protocols. The activity was completed in 1 month.
