Under the project, a dairy herd of 10,000 cows would yield 135 tons of milk per day. Once operational, this would be the largest high-tech with closed processing dairy farm in the Mekong Delta region. The TH farm will contribute to increasing quantity and quality of fresh milk supply for the Mekong Delta region and towards export.
Speaking at the ceremony, Permanent Deputy Prime Minister Binh said TH’s project has not only set a new chapter in high-tech agriculture of An Giang and the Mekong Delta but also developed farmers’ livelihood.
The success of the model will contribute to completing the goal of developing a herd of 500,000 dairy cows across the country earlier than the master plan for the agricultural production development until 2020 and with a vision toward 2030, Deputy Prime Minister Binh said.
In addition to the dairy farming project, Thai Huong, founder and Chairman of TH Group Strategy Council, said that the group would also set up organic and Global GAP farms which produce fresh agricultural products as well as build nursing homes and resorts.
The group plans to develop another model of dairy cow farming through a high-tech cooperative, which is similar to the model that it has implemented in Dalat, the city of the central highland province of Lam Dong.
