Global demands for livestock products will probably increase two - or three-fold during the next 30 to 50 years. The only environmentally satisfactory way of meeting this challenge will be to increase productivity per hectare and per animal. Similar increases have been achieved in some parts of the world during the last 50 years. However, such increases on a global scale will only be possible if greatly increased resources are allocated to national and international agricultural research, extension and development.
