Current trends and innovations in livestock production: A critical review

Author(s): Sana DV Satyanarayana and G Daniel Risheen
Abstract:
Livestock production is a crucial component of the global food system, providing essential nutrients and supporting livelihoods. This comprehensive review examines the current trends and innovations in livestock production on a global scale, addressing key aspects such as sustainable intensification, animal welfare, digitalization, and alternative protein sources. Sustainable intensification seeks to maximize productivity while minimizing environmental impacts through improved resource use and management practices. Animal welfare considerations are driving changes in housing conditions and the adoption of precision livestock farming technologies. The integration of digital technologies and data-driven decision-making enhances productivity and enables proactive management. Furthermore, alternative protein sources, such as plant-based proteins and cultured meat, are being explored to meet rising demand and reduce environmental footprints. However, challenges related to environmental sustainability, animal welfare, and food security persist. Balancing the benefits of current trends and innovations with these challenges is essential for achieving a sustainable and responsible future for livestock production.
