As the world population grows, so does the competition for arable land required for food, feed, and livestock production. That puts the animal nutrition industry at a crossroads—one in which we all are challenged to address pressing global problems such as natural resource scarcity, ecosystem degradation and loss of biodiversity while seeking solutions to tackle persistent pathological threats, reduce global-warming methane emissions, and reduce antimicrobial resistance.
Animal nutritionists are already challenged to produce more while faced with persistent pathological threats such as
E. coli, and feed mill managers and quality control managers need to address evolving regulatory compliance. Meanwhile, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, animal feed accounts for up to 70% of the cost of animal production. Success will require not only new efficiencies to control costs but vigilance and innovation to become more sustainable.
The good news is that sustainable animal nutrition benefits animals, the environment, and humans alike. So how do we get there? To start, collaborate with like-minded professionals who are committed to developing solutions for high-performing feed, ensuring the efficacy of your stewardship and production of pigs, poultry, and ruminants.
