Livestock husbandry is one of the significant agricultural sub-sector that competing overall economic expansion as it contributes 1.5 percent to GDP globally. About 29 percent of the world land surface is used for livestock production, either by permanent pasture for grazing or croplands for animal fodder and feed. In a world where a growing number of consumers and producers have instant access of livestock products we have a moral mandate to guide the expanding and rapidly changing global livestock sector so as to minimize its negative environmental impacts and maximize the potential benefits both economically and environmentally.
