This is the first time Yili is working with China Agricultural University (CAU) to help dairy farmers and technicians gain advanced management experience to operate modern ranch.

“Yili has been working on establishing long-standing partnerships with raw milk suppliers to share benefits and risks,” said Xu Ke, speaking at the opening ceremony.

According to cooperative mechanisms, Yili will help dairy farmers to improve and upgrade their breeding technologies as well as withstand market shocks, so as to clear the stumbling blocks on the path of development, Xu noted.
