Taking us to visit the farm, Mr. Viet said that after graduating from the College of Information Technology (Da Nang University), he continued to serve in the People’s Police.

In 2020, a turning point came to Viet when he happened to see a video on the internet about a deer farm. Immediately, Viet was attracted to this purebred wild animal. Thinking is doing, he and a friend embarked on learning experience in animal husbandry and moved to his hometown to facilitate work.

At first, he intended to raise the forest pines that people hunted, but it was not effective because it was difficult for the wild to adapt to the captive environment . Not giving up, Viet researched and searched to buy commercial seeds.

Thanks to the experience of learning and drawing from books and newspapers, the forerunners and the thorough care and care of Viet raised and reproduced well. From a few dozen initial breeding pairs, Viet has now multiplied the herd to more than 350 children, including more than 100 pairs of breeding parents. The scale of the farm is also gradually expanded.

Bats are rodents, the main food is corn, sugarcane, bamboo leaves, grass stalks… can be grown by themselves, so it is less expensive to take the initiative. The beauty of the bat is that its manure resembles sawdust, does not have a fishy smell, so it can be raised in many places, limiting environmental impact.
