The Center for Research and Technological Transfer for the Development of Dairy Farming in Humid Tropical Zones, Faculty of Veterinary Science, Chulalongkorn University, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with CP-Meiji Co., Ltd. for a dairy development project.
The agreement is to apply ‘smart farming’ knowledge and innovation for the benefit of Thai dairy farmers and the milk processing operation in order to upgrade the Thai dairy industry and improve the safety standards of milk from cows. Furthermore, both parties aim to develop 150 Thai dairy farms and add more than 3,000 milk cows.
With the focus on creating quality dairy farms, systematic farm management ideas will be used to analyse food balance and measure targeted healthcare. The knowledge will then be transferred to the dairy farmer’s network to deliver high-quality cow’s milk to consumers.
The MoU was signed by Professor Dr Roongroje Thanawongnuwech, Dean of Faculty of Veterinary Science, Assoc. Prof. Dr Kittisak Ajariyakhajorn, Head of Center for Research and Technological Transfer for the Development of Dairy Farming in Humid Tropical Zones, Chulalongkorn University, and Ms Salinrat Pongpanich, Managing Director of CP-Meiji Co., Ltd.
