TH Group on September 18 began the construction of a high-tech, concentrated dairy cow project in Mo Rai commune, Sa Thay district, the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum.
With dairy cow farms and a milk processing plant, the project, worth VND2.54 trillion (US$109.5 million), is the largest of its kind in the Central Highlands.
Covering 441ha, the project features two farming models, one of which is a cluster of farms spanning 60 ha and 378ha of meadows, and the other model involves local farmers in dairy cow breeding through high-tech cooperatives.
The farm cluster is set to raise 100,000 cows, using cutting-edge technologies of Israel.
Meanwhile, the linkage model targets 20,000 cows, with the participation of about 2,000-4,000 households in Sa Thay districts and adjacent areas. Farmers will receive support in accessing bank loans to buy dairy cows and build breeding facilities, and in veterinary medicine and milk sales.
TH Group will continue to pursue the close-loop production system in the project, and plans to roll out similar projects in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang and the northern mountainous province of Cao Bang, aiming to expand its cow herd to 400,000 heads by 2025.
