NDO – Vietnamese diary TH Group is preparing to receive 1,290 Holstein Friesian (HF) high-yield dairy cows imported from the US.
This is the first time Vietnam has imported a relatively large number of cows from the US. Each cow is capable of producing 12,000 litres of milk per year.
Earlier, the TH Group announced its successful development of a high-yield embryo on March, 2017.
In addition to conducting artificial insemination on the HF cows, TH Group has made breakthroughs by importing frozen embryos from high-yield dairy cows, and created a new breed of high-yield animals – each of which can produce 12,000-13,000 litres per year.
This output is equivalent to that seen in the US and Israel, which are among the world’s largest high-quality fresh milk producers.
At present, TH Group’s milk-producing herd has reached an average annual output of 8,000-9,000 litres, making it one of the largest producers in Southeast Asia.
