The Liuzhou animal agriculture department said recently that promoting good cattle breeding will play a key role this year to help the city boost the business of livestock farming.

Liuzhou city has set up a goal to complete the crossbreeding of 32,000 cows. The city has completed 51.63 per cent of its goal by crossbreeding 16,522 cows as of the end of June 2013.

According to the local animal agriculture department, crossbreeding can help create better, stronger cattle, which are able to produce more, higher quality milk and beef.
