Vietnam's livestock product exports increased by 4.8% year-on-year to US$113 million in the first quarter, according the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD).

Import turnover of livestock products in the first quarter was estimated at about $702 million, down 6.7% compared to the same period in 2023.

Vietnam also imported 518 pigs; 1,657 cows and 583,783 chickens.

In the second quarter, the Department of Livestock Production will coordinate with the Department of Animal Health and relevant units to closely monitor supply and prices of animal feed ingredients at home and abroad, aiming at taking timely measures to minimise the impact on the livestock industry's production and business.

They will also strictly control the trading and transportation of cattle, poultry and related products, especially at border gates, trails and hiking areas in border zones.

They will coordinate with relevant units to handle violations of the quality of livestock breeds and animal feed.
