Chinese experts assist KZN pig project
Nanping experts have agreed to assist KwaZulu-Natal in
South Africa, through innovative technology and scientific methods for
preserving and enhancing the supply of pigs.
South Africa is currently importing over 60% of pork products, making it a
very expensive commodity for local consumers.
Dahe Agricultural and Animal Husbandry centre in Fujian, which
produces over 120,000 pigs per year and slaughters up to 90 000, have committed
to a technical co-operation agreement with KZN for the transfer of skills.
Advanced and innovative mushroom technology started by Chinese
scientists in KwaZulu-Natal has prompted other African countries to adopt the
idea and train students in cultivation.
