South China Dairy Industry Continues to Modernize

On June 20, ATO Guangzhou staff visited a newly built dairy farm in Guangzhou.  The owner and the farm manager are alumni of USDA/Cochran Fellowship Programs (CFP), where they visited the United States and learned about farm design/management.  During these trips, the two fellows learned about the latest dairy technology, including tunnel ventilation barns, which help to resolve the biggest challenge of local dairy farming in South China – heat stress.  In South China, dairy cows suffer great discomfort and stress due to high temperature and humidity, severely impacting the milk yield.  After attending the CFP, these participants decided to adopt this U.S. technology and hired two U.S. experts to help build a large barn with tunnel ventilation in their new farm – the first in South China.  In addition to purchasing U.S. technology and equipment, this dairy farm also uses U.S. hay and U.S. dairy genetics.
