The location of this cattle fattening project is in Ciangir Village - Legok Sub - Distric which is directly adjacent to Ranca Iyuh Village - Panongan Sub - Distric - Tangerang Distric - Banten Province - Indonesia. The facilitator for this project is the 14 Panongan Militery Rayon Command - Tigaraksa Militery Distric Command, together with Religious Leaders - Community Leaders and other elements of society (including the priests of the Congregation of the Sacred Hearts Jesus and Mary). 

The purpose of this cattle fattening project is to help underprivileged communities to earn income so that their lives become more prosperous and independent. This goal was conveyed by Captain Inf. Captain Agus Halim Siregar in his speech: "This community cattle fattening project is one concrete manifestation of the implementation of the Indonesia Army’s collaboration with Religious Leaders - Community Leaders, namely pioneering efforts to help the community in overcoming their difficulties. Hopefully this food security effort can be an inspiration for many people to do the same.” Ustad Maman (Muslim Religious Leader - Community Leader), expressed his hope: “Hopefully the empowerment of this residents’ cattle fattening project will be a blessing for many people. Being useful for others will definitely unite the Indonesian people because helping others does not look at ethnicity, religion, and background.”
