The pace of human population growth coupled with economic and urban development has a considerable impact on livestock production, particularly through the growing demand for animal-derived protein.
Livestock is already one of the most demanding sectors in terms of resource use and emission intensities. Think about land use, for feed crops and grazing. Or manure excretion, which can pollute groundwater. Or water use for feeding crops and animal drinking and servicing.
While land and water are likely to be suffering from regional shortages, emissions will constrain meat production on a global scale. In addition, several consumer demands put pressure on farmers to increase productivity and sustainability of operations. Some of these demands are lower prices, better animal health, welfare, and living conditions and also reducing antibiotic use.
Health issues and diseases can decrease production efficiency of livestock by more than 20%. The trend towards more and more intensification of livestock farming systems increases productivity, but can also have adverse effects on animal health and welfare, and increases the risk of rapid and far-reaching disease outbreaks within stocks.
A good bio-security program is an effective way of reducing the risk of a disease outbreak and the spread of a contagious disease from animal to animal and from animals to humans. Cleaning and sanitation regimes that are easy and quick to employ are crucial to keep the infection pressure low, to lower mortality rate and to optimize the overall performance of the company.
