In 2010, from April 24th to the 26th, in order to help the development of rabbit –rearing industry in Ding Zhii Qiao town, Yilong county, ARDY organized the town and village officials from Ding Zhii Qiao town and more than thirty rabbit raising farmers in going to the Dayi County Xuping rabbit training base to visit and study. Zhang Shuping, director of the Xuping rabbit production training base, introduced her rural organization and the current development situation of its rabbit-rearing industry.
Through training, they realized how to achieve a healthy balance between feeding and environmental protection. The focus was on how to control the breeding costs, improve quality and variety of rabbits, feeding techniques and prevention and cure of rabbit disease. The training also focused on how to promote the rural economic development model based on the “grass + rabbit+ methane gas” cycle, and the mutually reciprocal Badi grass model.
Afterwards, the staff went to the rabbit production cultivation base to visit and study. Through the above-mentioned training, everybody has gained confidence in developing the rabbit industry and clarified the direction and method of rabbit production.
