Alpas White Cashmere Goat is one of China's 20 excellent varieties and Grade-A protected species in national animal genetic resources protection catalogue. In 2008, it was granted “Geographical Indication” by the Ministry of Agriculture. The body of Alpas White Cashmere Goat is covered with coarse wool (22-28 cm long), which has an immense protective effect. This cashmere species is top of the line as it boasts high net cashmere rate, large cashmere combing volume, bright gloss, long fiber and soft feel. It is because of the quality of fiber obtained from this species that the famous cashmere sweater is labeled as the “fiber gem” and “soft gold”. In 1985, it won the highest award of cashmere industry, i.e. “Chagna Gold Award” of Italy. It is not only one of the main varieties in national high-quality cashmere production and raw material for renowned “Ordos” cashmere products, but is also a dependable resource for cashmere shawls and cashmere scarves (national gifts for the APEC Summit 2014). Due to its fine and odorless meat, high protein count, low fat and cholesterol, rich proportion of amino acids and iron, and delicious and refreshing savors, the Alpas White Cashmere Goat is known as the “meat ginseng”. In 2014, Alpas White Cashmere Goat meat of Otog Banner was designated as “National Agricultural Geographical Indication”. Otog Banner is not only originating place of Alpas White Cashmere Goat, it is also its possession area and main production facility. Furthermore, it is the national breed preservation base, breeding base and transgenic base of this variety. The whole Otog Banner is home to 29.62 million mu natural grassland and forest land with a staggering 1.4 million on hand total of annual cashmere goats. In recent years, the CPC Otog Banner Committee and Otog Banner Government spared no effort to promote the development of Alpas White Cashmere Goat Industry. They developed and promulgated Development Planning of Otog Banner for Alpas White Cashmere Goat (2016 - 2020), built one national-level key breeding goat farm, two autonomous region-level breeding goat farms, one municipal-level breeding goat farm (annual output exceeding 2,000 goats), and set up 353 cashmere goat breeding goat farm stations (points). Up to now, 13 municipal-level leading enterprises, 200 professional cooperation organizations, 15,000 rural households and 51,000 farmers and herdsmen devote to the development of Alpas White Cashmere Goat industry. The industry can process 1,200 tons of cashmere, produce 450 tons of dehaired cashmere, sell about 1,200 tons of mutton and register an output value of RMB 800 million (accounting for 57.8% of primary industry). The per capita income contribution rate of the farmers and herdsmen is now 65% or higher.
