This year, the sale of livestock and poultry has been favorable, with the selling prices 4-9.6 percent higher than the same period last year. Specifically, the average price of live pigs is about 78,000 VND (3.4 USD) per kg, while that of live chickens is 62,000 VND (2.7 USD) per kg.

Right after the Lunar New Year (Tet) holiday, the provincial competent agencies and specialized units of districts have focused on guiding farmers to continue to raise new herds according to the plan, while strictly complying with the breeding process to ensure biosafety.
