At a time of increased concern over animal welfare and environmental degradation, the global demand for animal-based protein is necessitating the development and use of emerging agricultural technology. Focusing on livestock production systems, this comprehensive text addresses how the growing diversity of global food demands will be met in the future, providing insights into new and emerging scientific areas and the implications for addressing global drivers for change. Contributions from a wealth of international experts cover ethical, philosophical and systemic considerations, the impact of genomics on livestock production, the holistic systems perspective, the complex systems approach using stochastic modelling methods, and how all these factors can be linked to achieve sustainable outcomes.
