We wanted to give you some early information about the planned Dairy Goat Conference in China’s Shaanxi Province, Fuping County.
The conference on Goat Milk Quality in Norway in June 2013 made a deep impression on many of our friends in China. The opportunity to meet experts from so many other countries has prompted them to plan a conference for November 2014.
Now is a particularly important time in China, as their government is paying close attention to the development of dairy industry and the creation of “cow and dairy goat co-development strategy” policies. The number of dairy goats in China is about 13 million in 2013, with 2.4 million in Shaanxi alone and 85% of goat milk processing enterprises in China are in the Shaanxi Province. The dairy products by them account for 87% of the goat milk market in China.
In order to further develop the dairy goat industry in China and learn the development experiences of dairy goats from developed countries, it was decided to plan a Dairy Goat Conference. Ten universities and research institutions and more than 100 enterprises are partnering to create an event focused on farming dairy goats and processing goat milk in China.
November was chosen, because the “China Yangling Agricultural Hi-Tech Fair (CAF)” will take place at the same time, so the conferences will be carried out as part of a larger program. The CAF has extensive impact in and out of china, and this will greatly increase the importance of the Dairy Goat Conference.
