Shep­herds get fi­nan­cial help

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

A char­ity event was held in Bei­jing last month to help shep­herds in the In­ner Mon­go­lia au­ton­o­mous re­gion. The price of mut­ton in some parts of the re­gion has dropped due to mul­ti­ple fac­tors, un­usual for win­ter when farm­ers nor­mally an­tic­i­pate a boost in con­sump­tion of the meat. Work­ing closely with govern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tions and lo­cal en­ter­prises in the re­gion, or­ga­niz­ers of the event said they were look­ing for ways to ease the sit­u­a­tion be­ing faced by many lo­cal shep­herds.
