Recently, it is learned that the building of a pig farm community for poverty alleviation is underway in Liaowu Village, Gecun Village Committee, Yangqiao Town, Binyang County; two standard modern pig farms have been basically completed.
It is understood that this farm project is supported by nine villages (communities), including Yangqiao Community, with a total of 1.8 million yuan of village collective economic support funds at county level; nine villages huddle together to set up the Yangqiao Town Marine Joint Development Professional Farm Cooperative, and cooperate with Guangdong HAID Group Co., Ltd. According to Chen Haoxian, member of the Yangqiao Town Party committee, the total investment of the pig farm community is 4.3 million yuan, covering an area of 22 mu. The pig farm community is expected to be put into use in June this year, with 2,000 pigs to be bred and 2 batches of pigs to be sold annually. It is expected that the collective economic income of each village will be stable at 50,000 yuan or above. In addition, the farm community plans to build a new sewage collection pool. The excrement of pigs will be handled by biogas digesters and be provided to the base owners with over 4,000 mu of land for high yield and high sugar sugarcane, so as to improve the sugar cane output. Through the combination of planting and pig farming, Binyang County will vigorously develop the ecological circular agriculture and thus increase farmers’ income and lift them out of poverty.
