Jembrana, Bali (ANTARA) – The Bali Regional Police celebrated the 78th Republic of Indonesia Police Day (Bhayangkara) by holding Makepung or buffalo racing competitions in Jembrana Regency, Bali.

Makepung or buffalo racing is a tradition passed down from generation to generation by farmers in Jembrana after picking the harvest. Apart from celebrating joy and gratitude after harvest, this tradition has also become a tourist attraction, said Bali Police Chief Inspector General Ida Bagus Kade Putra Narendra in Bali, Sunday.

He made this statement when opening the Makepung Bali Cup competition at the All in One Circuit in Pengambengan Village, Negara District, Jembrana.

He said that Makepung was a spontaneous action of farmers after a successful harvest.

Farmers paired with buffalo race each other in the rice fields, which over time has developed into a tradition that only exists in Jembrana.

Because of Jembrana’s uniqueness, Narendra said Makepung is one of the tourist attractions.

“In the series of Bhayangkara Day activities, we held a Makepung competition here. “Apart from preserving culture, we hope this competition can attract domestic and foreign tourists,” said the Bali Police Chief.

In this competition, 234 pairs of buffalo were divided into western teams and eastern teams. They race on the All in One circuit which is located near the beach.

For the people of Jembrana, Makepung is no longer just a tradition, but a matter of pride when winning a competition.

In order to win the race, Makepung buffalo receive special care starting from food, vitamins and regular exercise.

Before the competition, the buffalo head is decorated, after which the cart is pulled by the jockey across the sandy circuit.

Winning the Makepung competition also increases the selling price of the buffalo, which can reach hundreds of millions of rupiah.
