Dak Lak (VNA) – Central Highlands provinces have paid special attention to developing cross-bred cattle to improve the quality of cattle for trading in the region.

Upholding its strength of large forest area and natural grassland, the regional localities have encouraged economic sectors to invest in developing cow and buffalo herds for business.

Apart from making it easy for families in the region to access loans for their breeding, the regional localities have also called on organisations, enterprises and individuals to provide a great number of breeding cows for poor households in remote areas, especially those from ethnic minority groups, thus helping them escape from poverty.

The Central Highlands boasts hundreds of cattle farms, concentrating in localities having large forest areas and natural grassland.

Gia Lai province has the largest number of cattle in the region with 397,620 cows and buffalos. It is followed by Dak Lak with 273,078 individuals.

Thanks to support from the Dak Lak provincial authorities, many families in M’Dak, Ea Sup, Ea Kar districts made great profits from breeding cattle.

Locals have been also instructed to plant imported grasses for breeding and give periodic vaccination to their cattle, with the aim of ensuring the quality of cattle.-VNA
