The availability and efficient use of the feed resources in Asia are the primary drivers of performance to maximise productivity from animals. Feed security is fundamental to the management, extent of use, conservation and intensification for productivity enhancement. The awesome reality is that current supplies of animal proteins are inadequate to meet human requirements in the face of rapidly depleting resources: arable land, water, fossil fuels, nitrogenous and other fertilisers, and… Expand

The Use of Agricultural Crop Residues as Alternatives to Conventional Feedstuffs for Ruminants: A Review
TLDR
This review summarizes the data of Turkey and Pakistan related to animal feed resources and availability of forage, problems associated with utilization of crop residues and recommendations about the offering of agriculture field crop residue and wastes to animals as alternatives to conventional feedstuffs.

Challenges, opportunities and drawbacks in intensifying goat feeding systems in the context of climate-smart agriculture
TLDR
Goats are able to attain high production levels when they have the potential and receive a diet of high nutritive value, but there is a trade-off between the cost and increased production, which needs to be evaluated in the context of climate-smart agriculture. Expand
The Search for Efficiency in the Management of Natural Resources
There is an urgent need to regenerate agriculture to increase productivity, support economic development and address concerns regarding food security. The fundamental question is whether the moreExpand

TLDR
Improved outcomes in the form of livestock products, services and/or other outcomes from grasslands should be possible, but clearly a diversity of solutions are needed for the vast range of environments and social circumstances of global grasslands. Expand

TLDR
The approach that is the subject of this paper is that the generation of electricity can be a by-product of food/feed production and offers opportunities for sequestration of carbon in the form of biochar the solid residue remaining after gasification of the biomass. Expand
