Education to cow farmers can improve water saving

STOCKHOLM, Sept. 1 (SCBR)– A research by Dr. Junfei Bai and Jikun Huang from Center for Chinese Agricultural Policy of Chinese Academy of Sciences shows that
if farmers are educated in how to scientifically feed the cows, it can save at least
5 percent of water than business as usual.

STOCKHOLM, Sept. 1 (SCBR)– A research by Dr. Junfei Bai and Jikun Huang from Center for Chinese Agricultural Policy of Chinese Academy of Sciences shows that
if farmers are educated in how to scientifically feed the cows, it can save at least
5 percent of water than business as usual.

Dr. Bai gave a presentation at the World Water Week about their research at
a cow farm in Heilongjiang province.

They found that due to lack of knowledge and poor infrastructure, small farmers
in Northeast China can waste their cow feed a bit and that can be equivalent to
5 percent of water.

“But our project also show that if the farmers get some education in how to feed
cows and how to store the feed, they can save a bit and thus save water,” said Dr. Bai.

He explained that Chinese cow farmers are mostly small farmers and sometimes
their storage of the feed is not good enough.

He also argued that even though 5 percent is small, but if through education, if
all the small cow farmers in China can save a little bit, it can be tremendous
amount in the end.
