Animal Growing for Domestic Supply Increases in 2016

Animal growing for domestic supply in 2016 increased by 3.52 percent compared to 2015, according to the report released lately by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

In 2015, the total number of raised animals was 40.7 million, and it went up to 42.18 million in 2016 - thanks to the rising demand for the products.

Of the increase percentage, number of cow took up 0.12 percent, buffalo 3.41 percent, pig 7.07 percent and poultry 3.52 percent.

Number of cattle raised to assist farming activities, however, declined by 7 percent due to machinisation of the sector.

H.E. Veng Sakhon in his address during the recent closing of 2016-2017 work review and planning meeting of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries expressed his optimism for the trend.
