The cows are of purebred Holstein Friesian (HF) breed. The milk yield of HF cows is about 11-12 tons per head, per circle of 305 days, double the average milk yield of 5.5 tons per cow head in Russia.

The cows are on their way to TH Group’s USD 2.7 billion hi-tech dairy farm complex in Ivanovskoe and Mikhailovskoe villages, Volokolask District, Moskva Province, Russia.

This is the first dairy project of Vietnam in Russia and is also the largest agricultural project invested by Vietnam in Russia. Construction of the farm began in May 2016.

TH Group is also developing a dairy farm in Kaluga Province and is considering investment in Tyumen, Bashkortostan. It is preparing for investment in the Far East.
