VGP  – Viet Nam’s TH Group, famous for its TH True Milk brand, has inaugurated a high-producing dairy farm in Volokolamsk district, Russia’s Moscow Oblast.

It received the first 1,100 high-producing Holstein Friesian cows, imported from the U.S., on January 3. The cows, which are pregnant, are known for their high milk production.

Milk productivity is expected at 11 – 12 tons per cow every 305 days, helping the farm produce 30 tons of milk a day.

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

The cows are of purebred Holstein Friesian (HF) breed, selected with molecular genetics technology and under genealogical management for three generations.

The milk yield of the HF cow 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.

Founder of TH Group Thai Huong said her business will continue building farms and importing cattle to finish phase I of the project this May.

With total investment of US$500 million, the project is set to cover more than 50,000ha and farm 45,000 cows. When fully operational, it will produce more than 234,000 tons of milk per year.

This is the first dairy project of Viet Nam in Russia and is also the largest agricultural project invested by Viet Nam in Russia. The farm began construction in May 2016.

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