MAVERICK THAI MURRAH DAIRY MAKES MONEY FROM MILK AND FUN ACTIVITIES
THAILAND has the most developed dairy industry among the Asean countries, with more than 400,000 dairy cows producing more than 2,800 tons of milk a day. There’s one lady businesswoman, however, who believes that the Murrah buffalo is the better dairy animal for milking in Thailand. That’s why in 2003, she imported 50 Murrah buffaloes from India to put up Murrah Dairy Company in Chachengsao province northeast of Bangkok.

The lady is Runchuan Hengtrakulsin, who has her own reasons for choosing buffalo for her dairy project. For one, as a business strategy, she wants to have something different. She says Murrah milk is more nutritious than cow’s milk as it contains more protein and calcium, lots of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, too.

We met Runchuan and her daughter Charinee Chaiyochlarb at the 6th National Farm Tourism Conference in Cebu City on November 7, 2019. Charinee, who is now the general manager of the company, made a presentation of Murrah Dairy as a farm tourism destination. The conference was under the auspices of the International School of Sustainable Tourism headed by Dr. Mina T. Gabor.
