Japanese company establishes cattle business to Vietnam


A cattle breeding company in Japan, devastated by the 2011 earthquake, will start raising about 5000 beef cattle in Vietnam by year end in collaboration with Saigon Agriculture Incorporation (Sagri). Sagri will prepare a 500ha ranch, barns and young cattle, while Japanese farmers, Ushichan Farm Co, will provide their expertise in livestock farming.

It will receive USD 3 million annually in consultation fees. Beef from the ranch in Vietnam will be sold in local supermarkets and other stores starting 2018. Sales will be evenly shared by the two companies. According to Ushichan Farm, the move is aimed at helping Japan compete with US and Australian products after the Trans-Pacific Partnership pact is signed.
