Abstract:

This book deals with livestock studies in a global context: the maintenance of biological diversity, the international implications of the dominance of meat production in agriculture in the European Economic Community, the causes and consequences of overproduction of livestock products in Europe and North America, and world patterns of supply and demand for livestock production. It also focuses in more detail on selected technical and economic issues: dairy breeding and production in the tropics, livestock strategies for the Mediterranean and Latin American areas, cost-benefit studies in livestock improvement, biotechnology in livestock production, and the role and management of agricultural research. Collectively, the chapters in this paper provide many linkages between the technologies involved in livestock production and the economic and marketing framework of which they are a part. They also address the increasingly relevant questions of the sustainability of farming systems based on finite and often declining natural resources. The many highly relevant analyses and insights that they provide should therefore be of particular value to those responsible for guiding policy in developing countries and in those institutions whose mission is to contribute to the development process.
