Vietnam does not initially possess the cow raising tradition, this only emerged in Vietnam since the early of the 20th century. Up to 2015, Vietnam has more than 275 thousand units of cow and a total of 19 thousand producers. Cow raising requires capital and high technical skills, but in Vietnam, cows are mainly raised by small scale producers (less than 20 units/ producer) coupled with the lack of knowledge on raising and preventing cows from diseases, resulting in low productivity, high production cost, and unstable milk quality. According to the research, West Europe has production cost from 45-55 USD. While America has the production cost at about 35-60 USD, depending on each area development. Countries like Argentina have suitable weather and big farming land, helping reducing the average cost. Cost of production in Australasia is 36.6 USD, while it is 30 -35 USD in Australia and 41-42 USD in New Zealand. The discrepancy comes from food price, land price and the revaluation of NZD recently. New Zealand used to have the most competitive price in around the year 2000 (12USD/ 100kg) but the revaluation of the currency and rising inputs price trebled the price. In general, the cost of production did not fluctuate strongly throughout the period. Vietnam has the average cost of production because diluted raising and scale, does not achieve the economics of scale, low productivity (12-15 liters/day) and high cost of cattle-feed and veterinary. This leads to the lack of milk as input materials for milk manufacturing industry for years hence has to rely on imports.
