Livestock sector is socially and politically very prominent, and contribute to alleviate poverty. Livestock production — which includes meat, milk and eggs — accounted for 40% of global agricultural gross domestic product, provides income for more than 1.3 billion people, supplied one-third of humanity’s protein intake and uses one-third of the world’s fresh water. Livestock activities also have significant impact on the environmental changes including air and climates, land and soil as well as water and biodiversity. Rapid increase in the global demand on meat, milk and eggs is driven by augmenting income, economic status of the society, growing population and urbanization. Since the world population is projected by UN to reach 9.1 billion on 2050, as a consequence, the global production of livestock should increase twice to fulfill the global demand.
There is an urgent need to develop strategies in improving animal production system, optimizing the use of natural resources and minimizing environmental crisis toward sustainable production. Growing demand for livestock products with good quality in one hand and the limited supply with such a big variety in the quality of livestock products on the other hand, become a big chalenging for livestock experts, scientists, government and any related institutions to overcome. Several influencing factors in livestock production systems are idenfied, such as genetics and reproduction, feed and feedings, management, health and diseases, products processing and technology and also human resources in animal logistics.
Hence, those important issues needs to be improved, taking into account all the main constraints that limited the values of livestock production. Strategic Programs and Government Policy toward the self sufficiency in livestock production, especially in meat production, need to be in line with good farming practices from upstream to downstream levels. All practices is generally, aimed to sufficiently producing save and certified animal products which will eventually increase people income and human welfare. Application of appropriate management in all sectors and environment is essential toward a sustainable animal production.
The third triennial meeting of International Seminar on animal Industry ( ISAI 3rd) is a special forum for the exchange information and discussion of animal production issues and opportunities to present scientific and technical achievements in animal sciences and its strategies and formulation into practices. This seminar will provide a window for strengthening co-operation between international scientists and institutions.
