Animal production resources have become increasingly limited in the current natural and business environment. In addition to growing demand for agricultural commodities as a source of food for humans and livestock, the need to tap on technologies for renewable energy is adding further pressure on livestock producers. Businesses can also expect an increasing number of limitations concerning CO2 and other pollutants (CH4, PO4, N2O, NO3) in the future.
From a macro-ecological standpoint, the role of animal nutrition in affecting sustainable yet profitable farming will become more important than ever. By improving feed efficiency through the use of advanced feed additive solutions, levels of methane and other greenhouse gases emitted by livestock can be reduced. Not only does this reduce the amount of anti-pollution taxes that producers have to pay under environmental legislatives, it also promotes a more sustainable and ecologically sound system of animal production.
