At a meeting held Thursday with the HCMC People’s Committee, the Israeli Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development announced it would set up a hi-tech dairy cow farm in the city’s Binh Chanh District.

The facility’s first five-year phase will be operated with VND41 billion (US$2.6 million) worth of hi-tech Israeli veterinary technology.

Under the technology, 100 dairy cattle can produce 8,000 liters of milk after a 10-month raising period, while Vietnamese cows can only produce 4,500 liters over the same amount of time without the equipment.

Situated in Pham Van Hai commune, the 10-ha farm will be capable of breeding 180 dairy cows.

At the meeting, Shalom Simhon, Israeli Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, expressed his desire to boost partnership with the HCMC administration in poultry breeding, milk production, and irrigation.
