The agricultural popuralization is most important part of
modern agriculture,which has functions:
•offer farmers information about economicy,market and
knowledge of science and technology
•generalize and popularize new knowledge of science
and technology
•give farmers consulution services and help them settle
problems of production and management
•train farmers and help them impove the production and
management skill

As previous page said, the functions of AISS are relative
to the information technology. So the based-on computer
network Information Technology is very vital to
farmers,which will benefit farmers.
• get information as much as possible
• update information easy
• cooperate with experts and exchange information
• get a lot of relative information,such as weather forcast,
market intelligence report,policy and law

                                              SDIC of CAAS
In recent years, our government and science and
technology workers contribute their time and knowledge
to the AISS. So farmers can obtain information by :
•Radio Broadcast

Computing is the basic function of computer and become
more and more powerful,which make the complex
mathmeitics and statistics analysis possible.As far as
animal agriculture is concerned , computing is very vital.
Modern animal breeding has two characters, one is to use
the principle and method of modern heredity breeding and
the other is the application of computer.
So far, there is the regional information center on animal
husbandry in Beijing and Shanghai

In farm management, there are three important aspects :
 make the right decision timely to response to
provide good conditions for livestock (nutrition, the
environment, health, etc.) so that they can realize their
full genetic potential of livestock products
Make sure of the guarantee of food safety and not
environmental pollution.
In this three IT can play an important role.

                                               SDIC of CAAS
Farm managers frequently have uncertainty to make
  decision of enterprises and the development ,which
  mainly from the following three areas :
1) the lack of the necessary information (including
   internal and external),
2) the lack of professional knowledge,
3) The development of the random nature of things.
A good manager should fully consider these
  uncertainties, and minimize uncertainty, so that the
  probability of reaching a correct decision biggest
  (smallest risk).

                                             SDIC of CAAS
To achieve the goal previous page said, human brain
and experience is not enough. So we should turn to the
computer information (including knowledge) analysis of
storage capacity and computing capabilities.
Managers not only make use of computer and network
access, comprehensive and detailed internal and
external enterprise information, but also use some
specialized computer software, such as expert systems
or decision support system.

Modern livestock building involves building process,
construction, environment, and drainage, which calls
for more professional staff coordination. Building
modern farms can easily produce a variety of works by
using AutoCAD, 3DSMAX, PhotoShop and other core
software , which has the overall effects of maps and
map graphics to facilitate the construction side with
the visual exchanges.

 The basic function of network is information
  transmission and resources share. Compared to
  traditional information transmission methods (mail,
  telephone, fax, etc.), the use of information
  transmission has its own characteristics :
• fast speed
• Information transmission at any time to any where
• Transmit any type of information by the Internet,
  such as text, images, audio etc.
• low cost

Although the IT application in animal husbandry of
China has developed, there are some problems.

The role of government is not fully realized

Information collection is difficult

Management system is unreasonable

Networks system is imperfect

high cost and low quality of consumer groups

                                           SDIC of CAAS
1.The role of government is not fully realized.

with not enough attention and weak sense, the
governor is not really aware that the tremendous
role of animal husbandry information will play on
the development of modern animal husbandry.

the governer consider livestock informalization as
a waste. Because of lack of funding , the IT
application and research in animal agriculture and
hardware construction are limited.

                                             SDIC of CAAS
2.Information collection is difficult.

the capacity of farmers household information
consumption is limited;

the lack of network infrastructure, livestock
information requests timeliness and accuracy;

China is a model for every household raising poultry,
which is ubiquitous in the transaction;

                                           SDIC of CAAS
2.Information collection is difficult.

information collection system is not perfect. So a
large number of livestock information is disorder and

the situation is very difficult forecasted because of
the rapid economic development

breeding enterprises are unwilling to provide accurate
information, even spreading misleading information.

                                             SDIC of CAAS
3.Management system is unreasonable

In the industrialization process of animal husbandry,
production, processing and marketing belong to
different departments.

Because different departments compete for power,the
result is impacting the information collection.

Different department are not cooperative

                                            SDIC of CAAS
4.Networks System is imperfect.
In the livestock sector, there is lack of computer
technology worker.
In some areas, the servers (or computers) of the
national project are regarded as typewriters,and even
are considered unuseful

the development and use of animal husbandry
software lag behind, practicality is poor, and it is
difficult to play a role in the production,
The number of user who connects the network is
relatively fewer.

                                              SDIC of CAAS
3.5. high cost and low quality of Consumer groups

livestock information is the urgent needs of the

the higher cost and lower quality of the information
consumers remain the bottleneck for information,
although there has been great improvement in farmers’
living standards

1. Increase the publicity of information
 we should increase the propagation of information
   and expand the area of advocacy to solve the
   problem that people has low awareness of
 At the same time we must realize livestock
   informationization, and promote the strategic
   objectives of animal husbandry industrialization.

                                           SDIC of CAAS
And also we should attach importance to the following
  aspects :
 informationization construction works together with
  market mechanisms;
 livestock integrates in other industries, and this can
  bring more development opportunities in animal
 the production information , sector supervision
  information and market information should be hold
  together simultaneously;
 from localized, regional and market information to
  national and global information is necessary.

                                            SDIC of CAAS
2 .Formulate and perfect the relevant laws and
 The government should formulate and perfect
   relevant laws and regulations,especially in
   information security and confidentiality policies,
   prevent hacking attacks against computer virus
   infection and dissemination of information ,concern
   worldwide high-tech developments in animal
   husbandry and play catalyst role in the course of
   translating information into productivity.

3. Increase government support to the establishment of
   a virtuous network operating mechanism
 In the livestock information system early, the
   government should provide necessary financial
   support for start-up and maintenance, strengthen
   leadership and supervision, and pay attention to
   human resources, create an environment which is
   conducive to the maintenance and development of
   the benign information network operation
 Financial information will be included in the
   construction budget, and government should
   establish special funds, manage as enterprise,
   introduce competition mechanism in a variety of
   forms, and attract community inputs.
                                          SDIC of CAAS
4. Personnel training and team-building.
 Livestock informationization construction need a
    contingent of qualified personnel, which is required
    to complete standardized tasks of information
    collection, transmission, processing , management,
    and application services.
To do this work :
 to improve the training of existing personnel;
 to create a good environment, to attract
    outstanding talents in the most favourable
