KON TUM — TH Group began the construction of a high-tech, concentrated dairy cow project in Mô Rai Commune, Sa Thầy District, the Central Highlands province of Kon Tum late last week.
With dairy cow farms and a milk processing plant, the project, worth VNĐ2.54 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 60ha and 378ha, and the other model involves local farmers breeding dairy cows through high-tech cooperatives.
The farm cluster is set to raise 100,000 cows, using cutting-edge technology from Israel.
Meanwhile, the linkage model targets 20,000 cows, with the participation of about 2,000-4,000 households in Sa Thầy District 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 Bằng, aiming to expand its cow herd to 400,000 by 2025. — VNS
