MARD launches clean pork production project

12-06-2008 | |

The Livestock Breeding Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) in Vietnam said it would launch a pilot project on the production of clean pork by the end of this year, VNS has reported.

The programme was created partly in response to the recent pig epidemic that occurred in many of the country’s provinces, and due to the agriculture sector’s strategy to develop a stable livestock raising industry.

The pilot will cover aspects from the design and construction of breeding facilities to the breeding selection process to choosing suitable diets in accordance with each of the animal’s growing phases. Aspects like sanitation, environmental hygiene, disease prevention measures and safe production will also be part of the model.

The project in co-operation with some large-scale livestock breeding farms in three regions of the country, will be implemented nationwide next year if successful.
