China set to expand large-scale livestock farming
 

 

China aims to increase the proportion of its large-scale livestock and poultry farms by 10%-15% by 2015, the Ministry of Agriculture said in its 12th five-year plan on animal husbandry.

 

According to the plan, domestic animal husbandry output value is expected to account for 36% of the country's total. It also indicates government's pledge to provide financial support for animal husbandry for the first time.

 

The plan will help increase the number of standardised and large-scale rearing farms. The proportion of high-quality animal by-products is expected to rise further, industry experts said.

 

In China, there are great price fluctuations in the animal by-product market, mainly due to a lack of large-scale livestock breeding.
