Reality TV on NTV7 this July on Udang Galah

I have got an update from a friend and at the same time the contestant for a reality tv programme that will be air at NTV7 Malaysia on 7 July 2010.

The genre about the same as the Apprentice, with the major sponsors is DIGI.

The unique matter that I salute this contestant is, he is proposing for FRESH WATER PRAWN PROJECTS!!! Brave... and the udang galah industry will be on TV not just Astro. More media coverage means more exposure to the masses.

If he wins, better for us. The government and the banks sure will support the grower from now on yeah...


Good luck Razi (ex trueaqua marketing man)


He is nervous but he got good airtime lol, I think a full minute, free exposure, pakai seluwau pendek lagi, lepak tepi kolam, Nasty

Bank Loans Facilities from Agro Bank

I am planning to apply a loan from Agro Bank, Kota Tinggi Branch for RM 50,000 to develop my new udang galah ponds nearby Kota Tinggi, Johor.

The loan will only cover the costs of preparing the new 4 ponds (the land can accommodate 16 ponds), buying pumps, blowers, food pellets, and management costs for 5 months. My partner and I will fork 10k for the development.

Please remember that this loan is from the government scheme funds but you have to fit into the basic banking rules, either you have to produce guarantor or charge a physical collateral such as your land or house.

Why only 50k? Because the scheme offers:
  1. up to RM 15,000 without guarantee
  2. up to RM 50,000 with 2 guarantor
  3. more than RM 50,000 if you present physical collateral
Please check these links to special government funds offered by Agro Bank.

Please check here for Commercial Loan with the bank.

Please also drop a visit to your nearest district branch because loan amounting less than RM 50,000 will be handle by the district branch, not the state office, but eventually they will table your application at their state level meetings. And remember to get some recommendation letters from the Penghulu, Village Head or your YB!

Hoping to get the approval soon..wish me luck

Supply of Udang Galah Post Larvae (PL)

It was fun doing what I do but writing here is a sure miss.

I would like to write about the supply of udang galah post larvae or PL. The size is so small, just over 2mm at average. First time I look at it, my thought was I will be loosing my money buying them.

But, they are strong and healthy after 5 months, fuhh!

In the West Malaysia, most suppliers are from the northern country (Perak and Kedah). They survive their business by waiting for orders before they start the breeding session. I do not have their full listings but few 'otai' growers do get their supplies from several suppliers.

I am in southern state so the nearest to me is Port Dickson, I do not remember his name but I think he already given his number in the live comments cbox.

You should not be afraid of the PL quality as long as the supplier are accredited by the fishery department. Please also consider receiving your prized PL at night and release them to your pond in the morning, this can increase the survival rate of your udang galah.

And remember to check whether you are buying the right food for your PL, it should be the fine granule! and the protein content is higher than the growing food.

Here some reference pictures from the internet.

thanks for all your posts

would like to thanks all you reader of my blog, i am a bit busy but will try to link some of you with your requirements...

main problem for our udang galah ventures is:

  1. not enough grower/ponds
  2. government/bank do not support start up
  3. supply of PL should be sufficient
  4. dedicated areas of areas/land for grower
  5. banks also do not know the income statistics
  6. land very expensive if near good location/hills with stream
  7. we do not have co-operation/koperasi penternak
    because we busy get the money for capital initiation
hope any of you reader could comments, please
