A Japanese enterprise met with authorities from the Mekong Delta City of Can Tho on September 8 to discuss developing a cow rearing project in Song Hau plantation.
The Japanese Beef Import-Export Association (J-BIX) is expected to decide the final investment amount upon the completion of their survey in December this year.
Director of the Overseas Markets of the J-BIX Nakashima said the project aims to develop both beef and dairy farms.
It will ensure high-quality and high-yield breeding cows in tandem with clean and healthy feed for the herds.
Technology will be fostered in farming and processing to meet international standards on food safety.
The company will also devise environmentally-friendly and advanced approaches to farm waste treatment while enhancing farming efficiency.
During the meeting, Vice Chairman of the Can Tho People’s Committee Dao Anh Dung urged the Song Hau plantation to work closely with the Japanese firm to implement the project effectively.
The project is expected to create jobs for local residents and contribute to local socio-economic development, Mr.Dung said.
In 2014, the city had only around 3,500 cows raised by individuals.
