Challenge: Sustainability of feed and livestock chain
The global feed industry focuses on improving feed efficiency by improving the feed conversion rates for all major livestock and farmed fish species. The feed and livestock industries can achieve sustainability by developing a harmonized environmental footprint methodology based on life cycle analysis involving the entire chain. The development of common metrics can also help to calculate a broader range of resource efficiency indicators. The efficient usage of feed ingredients can support the reduction of the environmental impact of livestock farming through resource-efficient feed production. The use of co-products from other processing industries can reduce the pressure on land-grown crops.
What are the benefits of using feed premixes?
Some requirements of an efficient feed and livestock chain include the following:
- Access to safe and cost-effective feed and services
- Clear and transparent legislative framework
- Improved image (animal welfare, quality, and safety of animal products)
- Innovating approaches to mitigate the environmental impact of production systems
- Continuously improving working conditions
- Bringing innovative science to the marketplace
Global organizations such as the International Feed Industry Federation (IFIF) have developed a number of strategic initiatives to measure and benchmark the environmental performance of the livestock production chain. IFIF is a founding member of the Global Feed LCA Institute (GFLI), which will use the FAO LEAP methodology to develop a global standard for assessing and benchmarking the impact of the feed industry to support the reduction of the environmental footprint of livestock products.
