Jelita Ostrich Farm (GPS: 2.75993, 101.99331) is an ostrich farm in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. It is located at Batu 6, Mukim Pantai, it is certified by the Malaysia Book of Records as the first ostrich farm in the country. The Jelita Ostrich Farm covers an area of 75 hectares. I visited the farm with my wife when we were exploring the sights in Seremban. The journey from the Seremban town centre took slightly over half an hour.

The Jelita Ostrich Farm is located within Taman Alam Veterinar, an animal park run by the Negeri Sembilan Veterinary Services Department. A private sector leased out the land to create the ostrich farm. In addition to ostriches, the farm also has other animals such as goats and turkeys.

I enjoyed myself coming face-to-face with ostriches. At the farm, there were ostrich racing demonstrations, and we were also allowed to ride the ostriches. But to be honest, I am somewhat unnerved by such activities. I mean, I am okay with patting ostriches, but to ride them, to me, borders on animal cruelty.

We were also shown how tough are ostrich eggs. We could stand on them on one leg, and they would not break. We were told that this is due to the forces around the egg which provents it from breaking, even when a lot of weight is placed over it. However, the eggs are actually brittle, and could break if knocked at the right places.

We learned that ostriches, like humans and dogs, each have their own personality. Some are quite docile while some are more aggressive. The trainers at the farm have identified the behaviour of their ostriches. So, they only allow the tame ones to be approached by visitors. Some are so friendly that you can let them eat right out of your hands.
