The Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk) imported more than 200 organic dairy cows from Australia in October.
These pregnant cows are expected to produce 8,000 litres per cycle.
These cows were sent to Vinamilk’s Organic Milk Farm Da Lat in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, bringing the total number of cows at the farm to nearly 1,000.
At this farm, dairy cows are fed with 100 percent organic food and cavort freely in the fresh grasslands of Da Lat every day. Favourable weather conditions and professional equipment such as a closed waste treatment system, renewable energy biogas and solar energy as well as automatic cooling fan system will provide the most favourable habitat to improve the milking ability of cows.
From the beginning of this year, Vinamilk has imported more than 400 dairy cows to the Thong Nhat high-tech dairy farm in the central province of Thanh Hoa and Vinamilk Organic Farm Da Lat, increasing the number of cows in Vinamilk’s farms and farmers to over 120,000, with an output of about 800 tonnes of raw milk per day. The increase of cows reflects the commitment of Vinamilk to ensure raw milk sources for domestic production and export.
Next year, Vinamilk plans to import steer cows and A2 cows to serve the diverse needs of consumers. These cows must meet the standards of appearance and health, genealogy and reproductive capacity of the mother and genetic potential of the father, before being imported to Vietnam.
In addition to expanding its raw materials, Vinamilk constantly improves its machinery and technology, expanding its production scale and offering products that meet the needs of consumers.
