The region will provide full coverage subsidies for high-quality forage for dairy livestock to improve its supply capacity and quality. Subsidies will be issued for the collection and storage of whole-plant silage corn, alfalfa hay, and oats in dairy livestock farms, with subsidies of 50 yuan per tonne, said Liu Yongzhi, deputy director of the department.
It will also support the construction of dairy livestock provenance bases to improve yield benefits. The region plans to import 20,000 cows of improved breeds with subsidies of 5,000 yuan per cow to increase quality.
Liu added that the region will offer subsidies of 600,000 yuan for each dairy farm and focus on the renovation of breeding facilities and equipment, forage production and processing, and waste resource utilization to promote standardized scale breeding.
The region has more than 1.2 million cows, with an annual output of more than 5.7 million tonnes of milk. Its milk output, the scale of its processing industry and its market share of dairy products all rank first in China.
