ohn Nielsen said Vietnam’s pig breeding sector improved significantly in recent years, but production and quality could not meet the demand, while Denmark’s enterprises could assist Vietnam with different pig varieties and equipment.

Results on livestock imported from Denmark to Binh Thang and Thuy Phuong Livestock Breeding Centres showed a high genetic potential in terms of reproductive performance and growth. However, the centres also said not all the species would be able to be adapted to breeding conditions in Vietnam. An evaluation programme should be conducted to select the ideal species for breeding, suitable for Vietnam’s climate and breeding conditions.
