There has been an increase in the production of livestock species over the years. In addition, there are demand-side and supply-side factors, which have led to an increase in production. On the supply side, advancements in technology, including balanced feeding, precision feeding, and other factors, such as optimal addition of amino acids & mineral micronutrients, the development of improved pasture species, and animal husbandry systems, have helped in increasing the production of livestock. On the demand side, factors such as the increase in consumption of livestock products and the development of transportation, including long-distance cold-chain shipments, have made it easier for the trade and transport of animals, products, and feedstuffs.
According to the World Health Organization, there has been an increase in the pressure on the livestock sector to cater to the increase in demand for animal proteins. The rise in population, incomes, and urbanization are the key factors contributing to the unprecedented growth of the livestock sector. The consumption of food products, such as meat, eggs, and milk, has been increasing. Due to the rise in urbanization, there has been the ease in access to the cold chain technology, which permits the trade of perishable goods. The increase in awareness among consumers about the health benefits associated with the consumption of animal protein, such as improved bone health, immunity, and reduction in protein deficiencies, is also one of the several factors due to which the demand for livestock products remains high.
