A: the legal guarantee for the development of animal husbandry--NPC agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee in charge of answering reporters ' questions (legal daily reporter Guo Xiaoyu legal daily Beijing News December 29) animal husbandry law today at the national people's Congress Standing Committee 19th meeting, adopted without a vote.
    NPC agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee in charge of animal husbandry law problems answering the reporter's question.
    Reporter: why the development of animal husbandry law? Answer: since reform and opening up, China's sustained and rapid development of animal husbandry. But since entering the new century, new situation and challenges facing the livestock development: one is the lack of strict protection of the genetic resources of livestock and poultry system, some rare breeds numbers plummeted and even extinction. Second, fake agricultural pest of livestock and poultry farming events occur frequently. Third, traditional contradiction of feeding pattern and animal disease control. Four inputs such as feed, feed additives and veterinary drugs is not standard, influencing animal product quality and safety. These issues is the focus of attention at home and abroad, existing laws and administrative regulations all regulation and adjustment difficulties. China has promulgated and implemented the grassland law, animal epidemic prevention law, law on the entry and exit animal and plant quarantine, feed and feed additives management regulation, breeding livestock and poultry management, veterinary medicine regulations and other laws and administrative regulations relating to some aspect of the animal production or a link, it is difficult to regulate the whole process of livestock production and management. At the international level, most of the animal husbandry in developed countries, have developed animal husbandry aspects of law, to strengthen their animal husbandry development and market competitiveness to good effect.
    In order to meet the current needs of animal husbandry development, at the national people's Congress Standing Committee will develop animal husbandry law included in the legislative plan, strives to introduce a conforms to China's national conditions and animal husbandry law of convergence with the international rules, in order to promote and safeguard the healthy and sustainable development of animal husbandry. So it can be said that developing animal husbandry law is to regulate livestock breeding, production and management, the need to protect livestock and poultry product quality and safety; is livestock production from quantity to quality and efficiency changes, promote livestock production mode transformation of needs is necessary to promote animal husbandry administration.
    For speeding up the development of modern animal husbandry, and promoting new Socialist countryside construction, promote the healthy and sustainable development of animal husbandry, will have a positive and far-reaching impact.
    Reporter: does the guiding ideology and basic principles of animal law is?
    Answer: drafting livestock method of guideline is: put in recent years party and national support livestock development of major decision and practice proved success of policy measures, through legislation of form be determine, guide, and promote livestock production way change, protection and reasonable using animal genetic resources, specification livestock production business behavior, guarantees animal products quality security, maintenance livestock production operators of lawful rights and interests of, promote livestock continued health development. Based on the above guidelines, in legislative work, pay attention to the following principles: the first is from the reality of the development of animal husbandry in China, focusing on classification guidance, grasp the legislative stage and forward-looking. Key specifications of the draft scale livestock and poultry breeding, necessary specifications of current farmers ' decentralized production and attention to guiding and promoting livestock and progressive transition to a standardized breed. Second, combined with practical experience in the development of animal husbandry in China, foreign animal legislation and management best practices, adapted animal genetic resources to strengthen the protection and animal husbandry process safety management requirements, and meet the needs of international and domestic markets.
    Third, agricultural law, grassland law and law on animal epidemic prevention and other related laws and with this law, drafted at the convergence of the draft law on quality safety of agricultural products.
    Reporter: animal law what main contents? A: animal law basic policies for the development of animal husbandry in recent years State-backed down in the form of law, defined the system of livestock and poultry genetic resources protection, establishes the system of breeding livestock and poultry production and operation license, adding the content of the quality supervision and management of livestock and poultry.
    While, full consider to China currently scale feeding and traditional of farmers free-range coexist of reality, implemented Classification Guide, in "animal farming" a chapter in the on implemented scale farming of animal farms, and farming community from established conditions to specific of farming behavior are for has more strictly of specification, and on dispersed of farmers feeding be necessary of specification, through legislation guide animal farming way gradually to scale farming change.
    Reporter: animal husbandry law some problems which should be noticed in the implementation process? A: first, legal studies, advocacy to do the work. Animal husbandry law will take effect on July 1 next year, in consideration of the adoption and implementation of the middle half a year in order to better learn and publicize the law.
