Abstract


Cu Chi is a suburban district in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam with 66,700 dairy cows, and produce more than 400 tons milk daily. Dairy farming creates stable jobs and brings high economic efficiency to nearly 8,300 dairy farmers and thousands of other farmers in this region. This research based on the surveyed data from 40 dairy farmers in the study sites in the first quarter of 2017 by semi-structure, standard questionnaires and PRA method to find out the real situation of performance of dairy milk production in the region and suggest some recommendations for the dairy farming development in other regions in Vietnam. The findings showed that milk yield in this region was not high, but due to low purchased feed cost with the using of family labor led to low production cost, the farm margin was quite high, accounted for 57.7% milk receipts. Some recommendations for dairy farmers in other regions of Vietnam: Farmers had better use family labors; use by-products to feed their cows, well manage the cost of production, especially, reduce the purchased feed cost, improve milk quality and consider to the efficiency and sustainability of the farms.
