In the American Midwest, tornadoes pose a recurring and deadly threat to rural communities. In 2013, a massive tornado touched down and spread a wide path of destruction through Moore, Oklahoma. Twenty-four people lost their lives and more than 200 were injured. As word spread of the tornado and the devastation in Moore, CoBank reached out to the Farm Credit Associations of Oklahoma to offer assistance. Together they supported the efforts of Oklahoma Baptist Disaster Relief to help the community of Moore to recover and rebuild. Rural disaster relief has become a key part of CoBank’s corporate citizenship program. CoBank partners with customers, Farm Credit associations and nonprofit organizations to support the people and businesses of rural America left reeling from the effects of natural disasters.

According to the China Dairy Data Report released by the Dairy Association of China, from 1949 to 2018, China’s total raw milk production increased from 220,000 tons to 31.77 million tons, posting a 145-fold increase. Milk and dairy product consumption quadrupled among urban residents from 1995 to 2010 and nearly increased sixfold among rural ones, making the country the fastest-growing market in milk consumption. About 100,000 mu (6,667 hectares) of alfalfa await this year’s last harvest in Bengbu City, east China’s Anhui Province. Known as the king of pastures, alfalfa is rich in nutrients and works as a good animal feed. #FarmingChina #PRC70 #70YearsThriving#
