The dairy sector is a potential economic sector of Vietnam. However, it
is facing some difficulties both in the milk’s quality and quantity. One of the
reason is the loosened linkages among actors and stakeholders in the fresh milk
chain. Due to the differences in geographical, climatic and socioeconmic
conditions, the state of these linkages vary among regions. This study aims to
analyze, evaluate and compare the linkages among actors and stakeholders in the
fresh milk chain in some important milk producing regions of Vietnam. Two
chosen sites are in favorable conditions for dairy farming are Son La Province
and Lam Dong province; and two sites having less favorable conditions
namely Ha Nam, Ho Chi Minh City are chosen. Data was collected from
questionaire surveys distributed to 40 famers in each study site. The results
have shown that the linkages in Son La Province seem to be the strongest
because of the favorable climate conditions and longer experience in cattle
raising of dairy farmers. Despite the favorability of climate condition, the
linkages in Lam Dong are still loose. Linkages
in Lam Dong are even looser than those in Ho Chi Minh city, which is an
unfavorable area. Linkages in Ha Nam are likely to be the most loosened among
four study sites. Linkages between dairy farmers and some types of
stakeholders are quite tenuous. It is recommended for all actors and stakeholders
to enhance the strengths of the fresh milk chain: Dairy farmers should be more
actively join in the chain, dairy plants – the most powerful actors in the
chain, should be more supportive in terms of providing loan, technique and
traninng etc., and last but not least, it is the more intense of stakeholders’
involvement in the fresh milk chain.
