With the arrival of summer, the Ar Horqin Grassland -- in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region -- has entered a lush and vibrant period.

In a typical moment, a calf born there in the spring now puts on a growth spurt, as it bathes in the warmth of the summer -- frolicking in the expansive grassland and adding its life vitality to the resplendent scenery.

Ar Horqin Banner is one of the 33 banners in Inner Mongolia that are focused on developing their agricultural and animal husbandry sectors.

In recent years, the banner has continued to increase the development of the beef cattle industry there, making it a pillar sector for local farmers and herdsmen to increase their income.
