I was surprised by the skills of three men who could bring about cross breeds of wildboars and local pigs fairly easily! Dublin does not have any background at all in animal husbandry as he is an Oil and Gas man by training. Besides farming is only his past time. He wittily said that he is now in the " Oil and Palm " business .
It is heartening to see his farm of cross breds thriving and so many fruit trees flowering. He set up the farm to help his own nephews establish themselves as modern progressive farmers. Training is also made available to them by the Government's Agricultural Department at its training centre in Kebuloh.
Animal health is as important as human health.
|Langsat looking like gold in the sun. It is eye opening for those who have never seen langsat growing on a tree!!|
|Buah Salak. In fact this was my first encounter with a buah salak palm. This palm cannot be hugged!!|
|One of the cross bred females . Note the longer snout and the ears.|
|The small farm also has Duku Langsat trees. Other fruit trees are also found like rambutans and pomeloes.|
|Serai Wangi bush - grown to protect the farm|
|Pumpkins grow freely on the available slopes around the farm house.|
