The cows were on their way to TH Group’s US$2.7 billion hi-tech dairy farm complex in Ivanovskoe and Mikhailovskoe villages, Volokolask District, Moskva Province, Russia.
The cows are of purebred Holstein Friesian (HF) breed, selected with molecular genetics technology and under genealogical management for three generations.
The milk yield of the HF cow is about 11-12 tonnes per head, per circle of 305 days, double the average milk yield of 5.5 tonnes per cow head in Russia
This is the first dairy project of Viet Nam in Russia and is also the largest agricultural project invested by Vietnam in Russia. The farm began construction in May 2016.
TH Group is also developing a dairy farm in Kaluga Province and is considering investment in Tyumen, Bashkortostan, and is preparing for investment in the Far East.
