Hanoi (VNA)
- The Vietnam Dairy Products JSC (Vinamilk) is working on plans to expand its milch cow farms at home and abroad, said its Executive Director for Raw Materials Development Trinh Quoc Dung.

Several farms will be put into operation in the near future, including a 90ha milch cow farm in the central province of Quang Ngai with 4,000 heads of cow.

Built at a total cost of 700 billion VND (30,400 USD), the farm is expected to supply about 20 million litres of fresh milk to the market each year.

As planned, Vinamilk will continue completing the first stage of an organic milch cow farm on Xiengkhuoang highlands of Laos with a herd of 24,000 cows. In the second stage, the herd will increase to 100,000.

In particular, it is going to launch a germ transplantation centre using Japanese and US technologies to choose the best genes and develop cow herds in the country./.
