Vietnam would modernise its livestock sector by shifting from household-based to industrial farms in a move to boost quantity and quality of livestock products, according to Hoang Kim Giao, Director General of the Livestock Production Department.
He said under Vietnam's livestock development strategy until 2020, the country targets to increase its pig population from 27.37 million in 2010 to 35 million by 2020. The livestock industry targets production of 6.7 million tonnes of meat, 14.5 billion eggs, and 1 million tonnes of milk.
