From March 18 to 22, President Tao visited Taiwan's animal husbandry at invitation, and had in-depth exchanges with officials of the animal husbandry department of the Taiwan Agricultural Commission and industry insiders on the animal husbandry industry across the Taiwan Straits.
Compared with Europe, America, Japan and South Korea, Taiwan's animal husbandry has a strong reference significance to the mainland. According to Mr. Tao at a special training meeting on value services on March 24, 30 years ago, there were about 540000 farmers in Taiwan, but now there are only 40000; the per capita number of breeding has increased from 6 to 600; and the number of feed enterprises has decreased from 600 to 102. The reason is that with the deepening of urbanization and other factors, the transformation of breeding industry and the rise of large-scale pig farms have promoted the development of feed industry, the improvement of feeding technology, epidemic prevention level and the prosperity of related industries, which is a quite obvious trend.
Mr. Tao said that the development level of Taiwan's animal husbandry is 20 years ahead of that of the mainland. The current situation in Taiwan is the future development direction of the mainland's animal husbandry industry. The development mode of a single feed enterprise will definitely have no survival space in the future, so it must take the road of industrial chain development mode, which also proves that the company's strategic goal of being the leader of China's pig production chain is correct. Mr. Tao stressed that after nearly a year's exploration, the company's customers are positioned at small and medium-sized professional households. It is necessary to seize the current transformation opportunity, base on the long-term, further improve the comprehensive service ability, create greater value for farmers, create core competitiveness, and realize the sustainable and healthy development of the company.
