Sustainability in any enterprise depends on long-term profitability. Many factors contribute to this, including the optimal use of available resources. One such resource, technology, plays a major role in successful livestock production.
Livestock feeding and nutrition technologies include evaluation and analysis methodologies, rumen and post-rumen digestibility and feed utilisation, harvesting techniques and treatment of feed, micro minerals and amino acid utilisation, utilisation of micro-organisms in feed, and automated intake control and recording.
Equally important are the advanced technologies that influence physiological processes. These include rumen fermentation, hormonal control of reproduction cycles, immune system boosting and inoculation, product quality enhancement, fatty acid and amino acid manipulation, organism specific treatment, embryo, semen and cloning techniques, and automated production recording.
