HCM CITY — Viet Nam’s largest dairy product company, Vinamilk, has reported positive feedback from dairy farmers in HCM City’s Cu Chi District and the two Mekong Delta provinces of Long An and Tien Giang who have been provided with stable-quality, low-cost bran.
Vinamilk provided the bran at the price of VND600-800 per kg lower than the market price. The bran’s quality is tightly controlled as well.
The fresh milk productivity of many dairy farms has now increased from 1 to 3 kilo per cattle per day.
Nguyen Van Hien in Long An Province, who is breeding eight cattle to sell around 140kg milk for Vinamilk a day, said: “After using bran offered by Vinamilk, the average milk productivity has increased by 3.3 kilos to 17.1 kilos per cow per day.”
“The milk quality has also improved,” he added.
The programme, begun in February, aims to help farmers reduce breeding costs, as well as milk material costs, and increase farmers’ competitiveness.
This year, Vinamilk will continue to improve the quality of the cow breeds and the healthcare provided for cows. It will also provide veterinary teams to support farmers.
