The two departments indicated that the scope of implementation of the project should be expanded to make full use of livestock and poultry manure. On the basis of promoting the utilization of livestock and poultry manure resources in the whole county, and focusing on large-scale pig farms in 2020, 100 non-livestock counties with more than 100,000 pig stocks were selected to promote the utilization of livestock and poultry manure resources in the whole county, with emphasis on supporting the construction of facilities for collection, storage, treatment and utilization of manure. For eligible project counties, the proportion of central investment subsidies shall not exceed 50% of the total project investment, and the maximum shall not exceed 30 million yuan. We will increase support for poor counties, and the proportion of subsidies from central investment in poor counties is appropriately higher than that in non-poor counties. In principle, central investment is arranged in two years, with about 50% of the capital allocated in the first year.
The two departments also indicated that they would implement a subsidy project for the construction of large-scale pig farms. The investment in the central budget will provide one-time subsidies for the construction of new and expanded pig farms, large-scale pig farms (households) and the reconstruction of large-scale pig farms (households) in forbidden areas by the end of 2020. It mainly supports the construction of animal epidemic prevention, fecal treatment, environmental control and automatic feeding infrastructure in large-scale pig farms and pig farms. According to the investment scale within the central budget issued, each province can determine the number of construction according to local conditions, and set up the standard of subsidy in different grades scientifically according to the situation of industrial development foundation and construction demand. In principle, the proportion of central subsidies should not exceed 30% of the total project investment, with a minimum of not less than 500,000 yuan and a maximum of not more than 5 million yuan.
At the same time, the two departments also put forward work requirements:
(1) Procedures for the management of investment plans and division of responsibilities of departments for the promotion of the utilization of livestock and poultry manure and the construction of large-scale pig farms in the whole county, in accordance with the Notice of the General Office of the Agricultural and Rural Department of the General Office of the State Development and Reform Commission on the Management of Investment Plans for Local Agricultural Projects under the Central Budget (Development and Reform of Agricultural Economics  302) Implementation.
(2) Provincial departments concerned should strengthen coordination, strictly screen and determine eligible projects, define the construction site, scale and content, and refine the implementation conditions and subsidy standards. To guide and urge the peoples governments of the project counties, strengthen organizational leadership and overall coordination, accelerate the pre-project work, ensure that all the investment needed for the project is in place, and achieve the construction objectives as soon as possible without increasing the debt risk of local governments. Strengthen the project audit comparison and communication links to ensure that no duplicate arrangements, multi-head arrangements. The project units listed in the list of disciplined targets for dishonesty shall not arrange investment within the central budget.
(3) Provincial agricultural and rural departments should establish a project scheduling and supervision system to monitor the progress, quality, efficiency and achievement of construction objectives, ensure that the project is put into use as soon as possible after the completion of implementation, and effectively increase the number of live pigs in the region. The Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs will monitor and inform the progress of the project on the basis of the national major construction project database and other platforms. Local development and reform departments should strengthen the inspection of the implementation of investment plans, and the National Development and Reform Commission will conduct spot checks in due course.
(4) Encourage local governments to make full use of local government bond funds and arrange investment projects such as construction of qualified pig farms and utilization of livestock and poultry manure. Local peoples governments at all levels are encouraged to increase support for stable production and supply of live pigs, improve relevant policies and measures, and support pig production and resource utilization of livestock and poultry manure.
