The ranch can be monitored and grazed in real time by mobile phone

In the pastoral area 70 kilometers away from the new balhu Left Banner, herdsman sunir sat at home and enjoyed the network TV. Outside the courtyard stood a network receiver. The monitoring camera was facing the cattle and sheep on the grassland. Open the mobile app, and you could graze in real time.

Inner Mongolia Pastoral Area is vast and sparsely populated. In gongnuoergacha, where Sunier lives, the farthest distance between herdsmen is more than ten kilometers. Due to its remote location, the mobile phone signal here was very unstable. Sometimes, people would have to go to the mountain nearby to receive and make calls, not to mention the broadband network. In their spare time, farmers and herdsmen have nothing to do but drink; children who go to school and work are reluctant to come back.

Since 2019, new balhuzuo banner has cooperated with Inner Mongolia Radio and television network group to implement public cultural services and new smart pastoral area construction projects. The mode of cable and wireless convergence network is adopted to ensure that more than 95% of herdsmen can achieve network coverage, and strive to make up for the shortcomings of backward infrastructure and public services in pastoral areas.

Nowadays, the life in the lonely and monotonous pastoral areas has become colorful. Many herdsmen, who are almost isolated like sunir, watch TV, use mobile phones, and enjoy telemedicine, online shopping and other services. Even during the epidemic period, children in pastoral areas can take online classes without any delay in learning.

My family has 3300 acres of grassland, more than 200 sheep and more than 20 horses. Since the installation of wireless network and pasture monitoring system, even if not on site, you can check the situation of the ranch from your mobile phone at any time, and you dont have to run around chasing the sheep any more. Sunil said with satisfaction.

Herdsmen also participate in the modernization of pastures

The grassland of the herdsman mijigdaoerji family is located in kerlunsu manglaigacha, xinbalhu Right Banner, Hulunbuir City, Inner Mongolia. It covers an area of more than 8000 mu, but there is no shadow of a net fence, and you cant see the side at a glance.

The fence has been removed, and the grassland which was divided into spider webs before has been re integrated into a piece, and the rotation grazing of the four seasons has been restored. Said Miguel Dorjee.

In recent years, some herdsmen in Inner Mongolia spontaneously organized to dismantle the net fence, took stock of grassland and livestock, and nomadized on a small scale.

Manglaigacha is the vanguard in the modernization pilot construction of Inner Mongolia Pastoral Areas. Since 2019, manglaigacha has gradually removed the net fence, integrated 390000 mu of grassland and more than 5800 livestock. 248 herdsmen have joined the Manglai animal husbandry professional cooperative and become shareholders and members.

Now one or two people can keep nearly a thousand sheep. Miguel Dorji said that the greater advantage is the realization of rotational grazing, which is conducive to grassland ecological protection.

The construction of modern pastures has also liberated manpower. Aladengcang, a herdsman, used to be a poor household who established a file and registered a card. After joining the cooperative, he gave his 180 sheep to the cooperative for unified grazing. Relying on diversified operation, he made a net income of 110000 yuan last year, paid off the loan and got rid of poverty.

Han Yongli, Secretary of the kerlunsu Mu Party branch, said that the fragmented grassland has been integrated, and herdsmen have begun to come together in the form of new joint-stock cooperation, realizing the organic combination of modern animal husbandry and traditional grassland nomadic culture.

Yurt brick tile house, pastoral areas rich and strong

Traditionally, herdsmen on the prairie live in yurts. However, the reporter found that the marriage room of the post-90s couple is a 170 square meter independent brick and tile house in Alatan aohitgacha, Ewenki Autonomous Banner. It is equipped with European furniture, open kitchen and toilet, which is as clean and fashionable as a model room.

Only the endless grassland outside the window makes people realize that this is a pastoral area.

Many young herdsmen now live in houses like this, just like in the city. Its hard to imagine that azzlen, who is full of happiness in front of him, is actually an orphan. A few years ago, he was still a poor household with a file and a card.

We all have what we have in the city, and we also have what we dont have in the city. The life of herdsmen is very happy now. Hatoya, the first Secretary of aratan aohitgacha, witnessed the earth shaking changes in the pastoral areas. Herdsmen have cars in their homes, houses in the city, cement roads are built to the door of their homes, and tap water is supplied. In recent years, some herdsmen will travel to other places in their spare time. This is a well-off life. Said hastoya with a smile.

Grassland ecological environment has been improved continuously, infrastructure and public services in pastoral areas have been improved continuously, and channels for increasing herdsmens income have been effectively widened A new picture of a well-off life with beautiful pastoral areas, prosperous animal husbandry and rich herdsmen is spreading out on the Inner Mongolia prairie.
