Megatrends, Opportunities and Challenges Facing Australian Livestock Industries
Rapid and transformative changes in the way livestock farmers do business and the way consumers select products – driven by increasing demand, advances in technology, ecological considerations and climate variability – calls for a long-term, holistic approach to animal health and biosecurity policy in order to safeguard our investment in our herds and flocks and our adoption of new technologies.
Central to the industry’s success in this changing landscape will be addressing issues of protection against the risk of emerging diseases, and assurance of food safety, product integrity, provenance and traceability.
With these issues front of mind, Animal Health Australia (AHA) commissioned Spiegare Pty Ltd to report on the Megatrends, Opportunities and Challenges Facing Australian Livestock Industries.
The Spiegare report provides insights into global megatrends and explores four possible mega-shock scenarios that could impact the future productivity and profitability of our livestock sectors over the next 10 years, through the lenses of animal health and biosecurity.
