Livestock Production

Efficient livestock production that is raising domesticated animals to produce labor and commodities requires good management practices including appropriate feeding, animal health care, the selection and development of breeds.

Livestock includes a wide range of animals, e.g. cattle, goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, chicken, ducks, guanacos and many others.

This category covers technologies and practices on the construction of animal housing, integrated crop-livestock farming systems, milk and meat production as well as on the production of other animal sub-products, e.g. honey or eggs.

In addition, you can find practices and organizational techniques in the field of livestock production for social and economic community use of resources.

The livestock production category covers the Sustainable Development Goals of no poverty, zero hunger, good health and well-being, decent work and economic growth, responsible consumption and production, as well as life and land.
