Jingtu Pasture in Korqen village, Damxung county of Lhasa, Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region, has used creative ways to improve local herders' incomes.

 
They can become shareholders based on the value of their yaks, rent out their grassland to pasture and work there.
 
Herdsman Tsering Samdrup's annual family income increased from less than 20,000 yuan to over 70,000 yuan since he started work in the pasture.
