Breeding is now defined as a commodity economic sector in Central Highlands provinces with increasing value of production, annually averaged 5.8 percent, helping improve the incomes of the locals.

Among the regional provinces, Dak Lak has the biggest herds with nearly 709,000 pigs and 199,000 heads of cattle.

The results have been attributed to efforts to guide the locals in developing systematic breeding models in place of the unprompted ones that came before.

Additionally, the provinces have provided breeding stocks, mainly cows to poor families and given them access to loans and land hire for breeding development aiming at sustainable poverty reduction.

To date, the localities count 1,000 farms breeding buffalos, cows and pigs. The breeding structure has shifted efficiently from low-yield and quality strains to high-yield and quality ones.

The local breeders have also been planting high-quality grass to create good food for their stocks.

Timely and uniformed solutions for disease prevention and control have also been provided.-VNA
