NestlŽ hopes to help boost China’s dairy industry by training people in dairy farming and farm management, said Lu Ming, technical head of dairy and nutrition at NestlŽ (China) Ltd. The Swiss food giant’s dairy farming institute in Shuangcheng district in Harbin, the capital of Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province, has trained more than 800 people since it was started in October 2014. Lu said the institute imparts professional expertise, including how to prevent and control diseases, increase milk production of each herd, improve milk quality and save feed. Xue Jiangang, from East China’s Shandong province, said the farm where he works improved a lot after he took a milking and milk quality course at the institute in March. He said milking speed at his farm increased and the incidence of cow mastitis, which is inflammation of the udder tissue, dropped from 5% to less than 1%. Lu said training at the institute would benefit not only farmers but also NestlŽ. NestlŽ can provide its customers with safer and better milk-related products if basic conditions of dairy farming are improved, he added.
