Vinamilk splashed out approximately VND700 billion, equivalent to US$30.1 million, on the high-tech farm which spans a total area of 100ha in Quang Ngai, according to VOV.

The herd consists of over 2,100 cows, all of which are purebred dairy cows from Holstein Friesian (HF) and are registered with the American Dairy Association.

According to Vinamilk's partners based in the US, this is a healthy breed that is capable of comfortably adapting to the climate conditions in Vietnam and producing an average milk yield of over 11,000 liters per head each year.

The arrival of the dairy cows to the farm must comply with the requirements set for disease prevention and sanitary conditions for animal quarantine facilities.

The import of additional HF purebred cows will also help to increase the herd size in the Vinamilk Quang Ngai Farm to 4,000 cows, which are expected to provide a total of 20 million liters of milk annually.
