ok, last deep dive into the source of today's article. but i pulled up that pig article from a few months ago and they mention the same entity as today's source, and put it under the Ministry of Agriculture's umbrella. I feel pretty strongly now that today's article is from a state source.
From pig article:
"On October 24, 2021, with academic support from the China Animal Husbandry Association, sponsored by the Rural Education Development Center, co-organized by Zhonghong Pompo (Beijing) Group Co., Ltd., and undertaken by the Regional Development and Convergence Media Communication Operation Center of the China Agricultural Film and Television Center of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs"
