A cow breeding project worth over 7 trillion VND (329 million USD) will be carried out in the Central Highland province of Dak Nong from 2015.

Under the project, 30,000 dairy cows and 20,000 beef cattle will be raised in a total area of about 4,000 hectares by 2019.

Implemented by the Vietnam Dairy Products Joint Stock Company (Vinamilk) and the Duc Long Gia Lai Group JSC, the project is expected to create a momentum for the development of the local agricultural sector, and generate jobs for about 2,000 locals at breeding farms.

The project is welcomed by local leading officials at a working session with representatives from the two companies on July 23.
Local departments and authorities were asked to create favourable conditions for the investors./.
