Scenes - Sarikei Skim B - Let's get moooving

On the Sarikei to Bintangor route from Meranti Bridge, if you venture off the beaten path onto a branch road called Skim B (Scheme B), you will be in for a surprise. After the usual country homes and rural school have drifted past you on this easy drive on tarred road, rolling pastures will greet your retina.

Welcome to  a real cattle farm called Borneo Sapi Enterprise.

If you arrive at the opportune time when the cows are herded out of their pens onto the path leading to the pastures, it will be quite a sight with the ranchers yelling instructions to the herd. The cows will seem to understand that it means, "Let's get moooving!" You better get out of the way of the minor stampede.

These cattle are raised as livestock for their meat and are very popular during the Hari Raya qurban (korban) It will be a serene sight for you to watch these bovine creatures graze. Just watch out for the cow dung though.
