Push to boost demand for Australian barley in Vietnam
VIETNAMESE grain customers are showing strong interest in using more clean, green and nutritious Australian barley in animal feed rations. The Australian Export Grains Innovation Centre (AEGIC) recently hosted two separate technical webinars for Vietnam’s feed industry – focusing on pigs and dairy – as part of an ongoing campaign that started in 2016 to stimulate demand for Aussie feed grains across Asia.
In total, the two Vietnam feed webinars attracted about 230 representatives of the grains and animal feed industry. AEGIC barley markets manager Mary Raynes led the webinars and presented the latest updates on the Australian grains industry, and the production and availability of Australian feed barley. Australian experts Lloyd George, Tony Edwards, Megan Edwards and Steve Little shared their insights and practical advice on the benefits of using Australian barley for pigs and dairy cows in Vietnam, including the technical aspects of feed formulations and nutrition.
Ms Raynes said Vietnamese buyers, feed millers and nutritionists expressed very strong interest in potentially using more Australian feed barley.
