Vinamilk has opened Vietnam’s largest dairy cow farm, which spans 685 hectares in Ben Cau District, Tay Ninh Province. The province is in Southern Vietnam bordered by Cambodia so naturally, the weather is hot and dry. To ensure the 8,000 cows live comfortably, Vinamilk has designed the dairy farm, its 10th in the country, to be like a resort.
A system of more than 9 lakes, grassland and corn fields helps to cool the area. The barn is also equipped with modern automatic cooling system.
According to the press release on 27 March 2019, Vinamilk has invested VND 1,200 billion (equivalent to USD 50 million) into farm, which meets the GlobalG.A.P standard.
The farm is capable of producing 100,000 litres of fresh milk everyday equivalent to 40 million litres a year.
All cows wear the latest electronic chips to monitor their health condition such as stress levels.
A unique thing about the farm is the deployment of a robotic feeding machine that also plays melodious symphonies to stimulate the cows to eat better and create a feeling of relaxation and comfort when eating. The goal is to have happy cows who will then produce high quality milk.
