This policy is difficult to implement and progress toward better integration of arable and non arable land which is the key to increasing forage and fodder production is slow. There are constraints, some of which relate to: 2 Livestock Husbandry Development and Agro-Pastoral Integration in Gansu 23 • The lack of suitable land to convert from rangeland to forage-producing areas such as cropland for silage maize or oat production or for alfalfa for hay • The present system of transhumance that requires livestock to move on a seasonal basis from grazing areas in the lowlands to the uplands • The mind-set of herders that has developed over centuries of use of these remote rangelands that relied on mobility and freedom of movement to “follow the rain and the forage” • The lack of technical know-how on the part of the herders about how to grow fodder and forage crops and how to practice fodder conservation like hay making and silage production • The lack of suitable land where supplementary irrigation is available • The lack of capital with which to buy seed, fertilizer and agricultural equipment to plow, reap, harvest and process fodder and forage crops.
The answer to this is partly explained by the weak rangeland supervision regime, and by the inaccurate calculation of feed balance (Chapter 10, Wu et al. 2010). The policy maker’s perspective on how to perfect the feed balance system has informed the feed balance program but it is clear that input from plant ecologists and livestock nutritionists would help. Theoretically, the objective of feed balance system could be reached through the reduction of flocks and raising the supply of pastures given the overgrazing status on China’s rangeland.
The resilience of ecosystems has significant bearing on what land uses are viable in the future. Diversity is a main characteristic of traditional livestock production (Fig. 3). A wide array of feed sources is being used, most of which have no or only limited alternative value. ). The scope for increasing the traditional forage source from rangeland is limited. There are several reasons for this. Firstly, across NW China the most productive rangelands are being converted to croplands to satisfy the demand for food grains and/or fodder for the penned livestock that are a feature of the new modernized animal husbandry system that accompanies sedentarization of herders.
