Problems in the Development of China's Dairy Cow Breeding and the Countermeasures

This article offers an overview of the development of dairy cow breeding in China, and analyzes the problems in the development of dairy cow breeding in China as follows: the breeding scale is small; the pasture grass production cannot meet demand; the proportion of fine breed is not high and the dairy cow yield per unit is low; it lacks epidemic prevention and quarantine mechanism; economic benefits of large-scale breeding are not high. These problems have become bottleneck in the development of the dairy cow breeding. Finally countermeasures are put forward for the development of dairy cow breeding in China as follows: developing large-scale breeding, and increasing subsidies; supporting the development of grass industry, and ensuring the supply of good feed; strengthening cultivation and promotion of fine breed, and promoting the quality of fresh milk; improving the accountability system of dairy products, and giving play to supervisory role of the news media.
