Household dairy farms should improve breeding skills to increase output and quality and reduce cost price because domestic material milk price is VND4,000 higher than the world price.
The delegates at a seminar hosted by the Institute of Agriculture Science for Southern Vietnam on September 24 gave the advice in respond of rising price of domestic material milk.
They warned of challenges in dairy farming to households amid reduction trend of milk material prices in the world, especially when the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement takes effect.
If this trend goes on, milk processing plants will give priority to import of formula material instead of developing local sources.
