Interactions between Livestock Production Systems and the Environment - Impact Domain: concentrate feed demand
Original hosted in "Organic.Edunet", contributed by Social Updater
The degree of potential environmental impacts of the different livestock production systems are illustrated crudely by their relative consumption of feeds. The types of environmental impacts likely to derive from the production, transport and processing of feeds are outlined in Chapter 4, being mainly due to land-use and cropping for commodity production. Possible direct and indirect indicators of these impacts are identified in Chapter 5, though these remain to be tested in particular applications.
