Abstract

Dairy farming industry plays an important role in agriculture structures adjustment in Malaysia due to the growing demand for livestock and dairy products. In the cattle farm management, cattle feeding are the most important task in dairy farming. However, there exist several problems specifically in determining the quantity and proportion of feeding concentrates to sustain the cattle needs. Therefore, decision making system is required to assist the farmers. Thus, this paper proposed the dairy cattle’s feeding allocation system to determine the sufficient amount of dietary nutrients and feeding concentrates in cattle feeding. The prototype of this system is constructed using software prototyping methodology as well as structured method for data modeling. The prototype is expected to decrease workload and reduce redundancy for making decisions in cattle feeding. It is not only support dairy farmers to make a right decision for allocating feeding concentrates in cattle feeding but potentially become one of information centre and learning resources to help farmers to develop their own expertise.
