Do livestock have a role in global food security?
We are at a critical juncture for global livestock production, when competing requirements for maximal production and minimal pollution have led to the concept of sustainable intensification. Sustainable intensification of ruminant livestock may be applied to pastoral grazing, mixed-cropping, feedlot and housed production systems. All these systems have associated environmental risks such as water and air pollution, carbon emissions, soil degradation and erosion, as well as issues affecting production efficiency, product quality and consumer acceptability, such as reduced animal fertility, health and welfare. So what role do livestock have to play?
