Abstract: Introduction: Improved cattle production in the lowlands of Vietnam’s central coast provinces (including Quang Ngai) is important for increasing and diversifying farm income. This ACIAR-funded project10 aimed to build local research capacity and improve profitability of cattle production in central Vietnam without displacing food crops or other important activities. The focus was on overcoming the nutrition constraints of profitable cattle finishing. The project developed feeding strategies using formulated concentrate and tested them on-station and on-farm. The work led to increased profitability per animal as a result of reduced concentrate costs, reduced time to finish animals and lower associated labour inputs.
