The determinantfactors of the growth of calf cattle production in NTT Province (both technical/technological, economic, socio-cultural, investment, and related institutions) have not been specifically identified and measured. This is very important for the purpose of formulating and implementing related policies.The objectivesof this study wereto analyze the main factors affecting the level of calf production,and to formulatepolicy interventions to increase calf production. A research survey was carried out on parties related to the planning and development of cattlebusiness. The quantitative approach is in the form of regression analysis of time series data. The economic phenomenon of calf production in Kupang Regency has been simplified into a mathematical model (response function). The result reported that the estimated value of the parameters in the total calf production equation model in NTT was: TPRAS= –20434.1 +0.2262 LTTSIP*–0.0032 TLPRAns+ 0.2147 TLLTP*+ 0.1036TPTRU*+ 0.1877 TRKUT**+ 0.2067TRDIB**+ 0.1057 TRDVT**+ 0.3647 LTPRAS*+ 811.7645 TREND**.In conclusionl, the increasedproduction of calves was dependenton the increase in support for the main production factors [number of productive cows, number of farmers, amount of feed, and amount of cement/vaccine]adequatly.Policy investment (through interest rates and realization farming loans), policy of productive cows control (through postponement of slaughter and the provision cash incentives), and policy of technology support (through realization AIdoses of semen and livestock vaccines) significantly affect toproductionof calves.
