On the invitation from the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, National Agricultural Extension Center (NAEC) of Socialist Republic of Vietnam, a series of training workshops were conducted from November 13 to 17, 2023 in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City on ration formulation and evaluation software programs for beef cattle and swine in Vietnamese language using local Vietnamese feeds. This project is in cooperation with University of California Davis (UCD), United States Department of Agriculure, Foreign Agricultural Service (USDA FAS) and US Embassy in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The national implementation of the tool in Vietnam is expected to increase productivity of small-holder farmers and reduction in intensity of methane emissions (i.e., emission per unit of production).
