Yang's five-member family are raising more than 120 pigs, earning a net income of more than 200,000 yuan ($29,000) in 2016. The village is home to members of the Bai ethnic group, who had been living off farming in the mountains. To improve the living conditions and income for poverty-stricken villagers, the local government founded a pig cooperative in 2013 under the country's poverty alleviation policy. More than 1,300 households have benefitted from the cooperative, which offers information and services on breeds, technology, foraging, disease prevention and sales. [Phot/Xinhua]
