copying dazhais farming methods was an expression of loyalty to mao

farmers expected to work 24/7

however farming methods ecologically disastrous

one model cant fit all of china's different terrains

hunan province forests cut down to create agricultural land

floods caused sand to be left in piles in rice fields

animal habitats destroyed

1964-1971 4.5 million people visited dazhai

red guards killed 141 people in dazhai meaning they were forced to barter to exchange goods

positive changes to dazhai's community:

went from rural hamlet to well established village

buildings built eg schools

by 1970s dazhai was close to maos…
