Summary This study examines the prospects for strong growth in the supply and demand for animal products worldwide, especially in developing countries, where 80% of the world’s population lives. Based on scientific publications, statistics and field observations, it reviews greenhouse gas emission levels from livestock, the ability of ruminant livestock systems to sequester carbon and the capacity of the livestock industry to meet the challenge of sustainable development and to share its… Expand
Supporting sustainable expansion of livestock production in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa: Scenario analysis of investment options
Abstract Growth in demand for livestock-derived foods will likely remain strong in low- and middle- income countries, fueling concerns about expansion of production and the management of naturalExpand
Using a One Health approach to assess the impact of parasitic disease in livestock: how does it add value?
The types of methods and the data collection tools needed for a more holistic perspective are discussed and a framework with its application to coccidiosis in poultry is provided. Expand
Impact of subclinical mastitis on greenhouse gas emissions intensity and profitability of dairy cows in Norway.
Preventing and/or controlling subclinical mastitis consequently reduces the GHG emissions per unit of product on farm that results in improved profits for the farmers through reductions in milk losses, optimum culling rate and reduced feed and other variable costs. Expand
