On September 3, Meng Xiangwei, secretary of the municipal party committee, took a day to Changli and Qinglong to inspect on the development of livestock and poultry breeding industry and the utilization of livestock and poultry waste resources. He pointed out that the livestock and poultry breeding industry is an important pillar industry for developing the county economy and increasing farmers’ income. It is necessary to rely more on modern scientific and technological means and power to solve the negative impact on the environment caused by the large-scale development of agriculture, so as to recycle the livestock and poultry waste resources, further improve the quality of agricultural products with the full coverage of organic fertilizers, and lay solid foundation for agricultural products transforming into tourism products. Only when the agricultural products achieve transformation to occupy the stomach and bags of tourists, can farmers achieve sustained and steady income growth, and can the county economy get developed.

Changjia Special Animal Breeding Base in Changli County covers an area of 200 mu, which is built by Changli Jiapeng Trading Group Co., Ltd. with an investment of 50 million yuan. They introduced domestic and foreign fine varieties of racoon dog, fox and mink, adopted unified scientific breeding mode to solve the problem of degradation of fur varieties, and improved feeding level and fur quality. At present, the number of stocks of excellent species in the base has reached 7,000.
“The development of the base is based on the support of science and technology. Taking the racoon dog as an example, its breeding cycle is about 7 months, and the fodder needed in a breeding cycle is 60 kg, which is refined and special for them in different cycle from birth to winter period. For example, rice powder must be added at their birth to help digestion, calcium and trace elements are added for their growth period.” said Jiang Peng, the person in charge of the company, adding that it took more efforts to take care of these animals than to the people. You had to lose the profit if you couldn’t satisfy its needs, either the fur is not big, or the color is not good.
Meng Xiangwei carefully checked the nest and feeding situation, and listened carefully to the introduction of the person in charge of the company. He said that the breeding industry, especially the special breeding industry, should focus on the high added value to achieve high-quality development instead of pursuing the growth of quantity. As for quantity, Changli’s special breeding scale has been big enough. It is necessary to combine with tourism industry while extending the industrial chain and exploring deep processing. He said he believes that the special breeding industry can attract tourists, because many children know foxes and racoon dogs only from books, lacking close observation. The current breeding environment can’t satisfy the tourists, and there is still a lot of room for improvement. This is also related to the fact that we are mainly focusing on fur rather than developing tourism. Supply-side structural reforms need some imagination on the basis of reality. Only when surpassing the previous generation in terms of concept, can we surpass them in the industry, otherwise it can only be repeated and again. He expressed his hope that the enterprise should adhere to the concept of innovation and openness in business management, and promote the local economy and benefit the local people.
Jiacheng agricultural waste treatment and fertilizer utilization demonstration base adopts nanometer film aerobic fermentation composting technology, and annually processes 87,000 tons of agricultural waste such as livestock and poultry manure, with an annual output of 35,000 tons of organic fertilizer, which can provide 200,000 mu fruit and vegetable planting base with ecological and environmentally friendly fertilizer. Zhang Zhigang, the person in charge of the company, is very optimistic about the prospect of agricultural waste fertilizer utilization. A large-scale organic fertilizer production workshop will be build to produce organic fertilizers suitable for different crops, fruits and vegetables. It is expected to produce 220,000 tons of various organic fertilizers annually.
Meng Xiangwei asked about the composition content of various materials composting products. Accompanied by Yan Liying, a professor of Hebei Normal University of Science and Technology, he went to the fruit and vegetable greenhouse to check the growth of organic agricultural products and understand the excellent performance of Lvdao No. 7 dry cucumber. He said that it is the power of science and technology that makes livestock waste become a highly efficient organic fertilizer. Due to the killing of eggs, the amount of pesticides is correspondingly reduced. It is the power of science and technology that makes none pesticides and fertilizers used on crops, and a qualitative leap in the basic guarantee of production has been achieved too.
The core of modern agriculture is not relying on experience but on data. Experience is rough and data is accurate. The rough thing can't stand questioning while the accurate thing can not only affirm but also give reasons. We hope that more agricultural operators will learn from science and technology, and say goodbye to the empirical practice. Learn form the science and technology talents and let the flowers of science and technology bloom in the fields. We also hope that more agricultural science and technology personnel can walk out of the classroom like professor Yan Liying, with mud on their feet, to help farmers in a wider field, and achieve greater social value and benefit farmers.
In Binhai Shenghua Wild Badger Domestication Co., Ltd., Meng Xiangwei listened to the introduction of enterprise development and product deep processing in detail, and discussed with Jing Haibin, the person in charge of the company, and the leaders of relevant departments of the city, to solve the difficulties and problems in the enterprise development. Founded in 2007, Binhai Shenghua Wild Badger Domestication Co., Ltd is the only badger breeding enterprise approved by the state. Adopting the mode of “company + base + farmers”, it has developed more than 400 breeding household across the country. Its various deep-processed products have been recognized by the market and favored by the consumers.
When Meng Xiangwei learned that despite the difficulties undergone in the initial stage of entrepreneurship, Jing Haibin and three other partners insisted on and finally got succeed after 12 years, he encouraged Jing Haibin to seize the opportunity of cooperation with relevant universities to develop products with high-efficiency, special effects, and independent intellectual property rights, maintaining leadership with its key products. Deeply explore the core technology, make the products fine, win the trust of consumers with credit, and occupy the market.
Meng Xiangwei also visited the high-standard chicken breeding demonstration project of Zhonghong Sanrong Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Co., Ltd., and checked the progress of the project construction in chicken house, warehouse, silo and other places. Meng Xiangwei said that enterprises should continue to expand, deepen, and close cooperation with local people in large-scale chicken breeding, increase people’s income, enhance enterprises’ momentum, and focus on the tourism market to develop tourism products suitable for 62 million tourists home and abroad.
