Vietnam to boost waterfowl sector

Posted by | December 2, 2013 |

Vietnam plans to increase the meat output of waterfowl by 8-10% a year in coming years, said the Animal Husbandry Department. The waterfowl sector, which breeds mostly ducks, also targets the volume of waterfowl bred by industrial farming to reach 50% by 2015 and 65% by 2020. The country produces 280,000 tonnes of ducks and more than 2 billion duck eggs a year. Nguyen Van Trong, Deputy Head of the department under the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), said the selection and development of breed stocks would be improved. MARD now manages waterfowl purebred stocks and grandparent breed stocks, he said. These are bred at the Hanoi-based Dai Xuyen Duck Research Centre, the Binh Duong Province-based Ben Cat Duck Centre and the Hai Duong Province-based Cam Binh Duck Centre.
