Cibugary Dairy Farm Tour, East Jakarta

It's been a while that I wanted to stop by and see Cibugary Dairy Farm at Pondok Ranggon, Cibubur, East Jakarta, but just recently I could make a stop there. I came with Wid to a place that is a traditional dairy farming complex on the outskirts of Jakarta city.

Location of Cibugary Dairy Farm (Cibubur Garden Diary) of Pondok Ranggon is accessed via Jl Jambore which entrance is right after Pertamina gas station (formerly Petronas), adjacent to Mahogany Residence housing entrance on Jl Raya Alternatif Cibubur. At intersection after passing TPU Pondok Ranggon, where there is an Alfamart at the corner of a T-junction, we turned left.

The Alfamart is not at the main road, but on the right path after turning to the left. The distance from Jl Jamboree to the T-junction is about 2.3 km, or just 350 meters after TPU Pondok Ranggon. After 400 meters from the intersection we turned to the left where there is a gate entrance to Pondok Ranggon dairy farm complex. About 50 meters later we turned right into a small archway of Cibugary Dairy Farm Pondok Ranggon which road was only enough for one vehicle. My car was parked next to a traditional saung (hut).

Traditional Saung made of bamboo with roof of palm leaves at the front of Cibugary Dairy Farm Pondok Rangoon. In addition to cheaper than wood because the material is more easily obtained, the comfort of the Saung is also not lost.

The atmosphere was quiet. In front of the house on the right side of the driveway there is a refrigerator in which stored plastic bottles of yoghurt with various flavors. Several items were displayed on the front of the house. After I knocked the door several times then came out a mother who invited me to see the location on my own.

These are dairy cow pens of Cibugari Dairy Farm Pondok Ranggon which was freshly cleaned. The place to eat and drink for the cows were cleaned without leaving any water and straw. The cattle-drinking hour does not seem to have come yet.

Most dairy cows in Cibugary Dairy Farm Pondok Ranggon have black-and-white striped skin, and only a few are stripes of white chocolate. These cows look benign, as every day they are milked and hence familiar to humans. Moreover, school children often visit the place to see the process of milking and feeding of cows. The cow's rope is long enough to give the cow a choice to stand or on its knees. At the end of the cage there are also cows which bodies are all white. Maybe beef cattle. Because no-one to talk to, we went back to the front of the area where there are a lot of saung.

The above containers were used to collect milk products and were seen on the right side of the cow shed, which I just noticed when I was about to leave the cage. Behind Saung of Cibugary Dairy Farm Pondok Ranggon there is Arwana Pond which might be owned by different people because I did not see access to the pond.

In addition to receiving family visits on Saturdays and Sundays, Cibugary Dairy Farm Pondok Ranggon also provides several visiting packages for kindergarten, elementary, junior high school, and to high school students, with a minimum of 20 participants on Mondays to Fridays. In this place there are also some children's game equipment which conditions were still pretty good.

Just a few small glass tiles on the ceiling of the cage that can pass the sunlight into this cow dens, so the atmosphere was a bit gloomy. Maybe it was deliberately made so that the cows do not expose to sunlight.
