Jember (B2B) - Harga daging sapi saat ini masih tergolong mahal lantaran tata niaga daging sapi masih panjang dan distribusi sapi dari sentra ternak ke kawasan konsumen terkendala kemudahan transportasi.

Menteri Pertanian Suswono mengatakan Kementerian Pertanian akan bekerja sama dengan Kementerian Perhubungan agar ada fasilitas perhubungan untuk memudahkan jalur distribusi hewan ternak yang memenuhi standar ´animal welfare´.

"Kita sekarang memikirkan bagaimana memudahkan distribusi dari Nusa Tenggara Timur dan Nusa Tenggara Barat ke kawasan konsumen seperti di Jakarta dan sekitarnya," kata Menteri Pertanian Suswono dalam Gebyar Peternakan dan Kesehatan Hewan di Kecamatan Tanggul, Kabupaten Jember, Jawa Timur, Kamis (9/5).

Langkah konkrit, kata Suswono, akan dilakukan tahun ini dengan memperbaiki sarana pengangkutan sapi. Awalnya, memperhitungkan pengangkutan sapi potong dengan kereta api, tapi ongkosnya ternyata lebih mahal daripada truk.

"Kami sedang koordinasi dengan Kementerian Perhubungan soal itu. Agar alat angkut sapi efektif, efisien dan tidak menyalahi animal welfare. Misalnya dari NTT ke NTB," ungkap Suswono.
