As an effort to increase the willingness of the poultry farmers to diversify their business into the production of quail meat and quail eggs, the government will be rolling out stimulant for local farmers until the end of the year. From early August until December 2020, the government of Indonesia through its Ministry of Agriculture is committed to providing the farmers with soft loan credit and free vaccination assistant, and to those with reliable production for export, the government would also provide the farmers with free certification charge as the mandatory requirement to export. This initiative is predicated by the desire to limit the dependence of national quail meat and quail eggs demand to the imported ones and to increase the low productivity by the national quail industry that currently can only accommodate only 10% of the national demand. By this stimulant, it is expected that the number of quail farmers would increase by at least 30% by the end of 2020.
