In addition, the group will also increase the number of cows bred under the high-tech cooperative model with the participation of farmers to 200,000 by 2025.

Recently, the group inaugurated a high-tech concentrated dairy cow farm cluster project in the central province Thanh Hoa.

With two clusters located in Yen My and Cong Binh communes of Nong Cong district, the 3.8 trillion VND (162.6 million USD) project is set to house 20,000 cows.

TH Group has been helping farmers apply high technologies such as cloud computing and internet of things in their production through the hi-tech cooperative model, with the first model implemented in Da Lat through the Dalatmilk brand.
