Description

China’s Dairyman is an original magazine written, and edited by myself. The project required extensive research into the dairy industry of China, the U.S., and around the world. Some background information was also provided by my education as a third year Dairy Science Major. The magazine is meant to mimic dairy research magazines in the U.S. like Hoard’s Dairyman. It is eight pages long with six articles, all of which are presented with visual aids and formatted to look professional. These articles discuss: China’s dairy industry in the past and present, how China compares to the U.S., how China influences the global market, and some issues in China related to the dairy industry. While working on this project I was astounded at how each country affects the other countries of the world. China’s high importation of milk powder is a large part of what has brought the U.S. milk prices to an all-time high. This in turn helps our economy and we then purchase more manufactured goods from China. It is a circle that is always fluctuating but never really leaves one country completely above the other. I was also astonished by our food safety risks as I learned about the Melamine scandal in 2008. Six children died in China because corporations simply wanted more money for their product and they didn't care about the consequences. This research project took a large majority of my time for several weeks, but I am proud of my accomplishment and I feel my education has greatly benefited from this experience.
