Resource costs of animal protein production



Resource costs of animal protein production



World Animal Review (21): 6-10



As agricultural resources, especially fossil fuel reserves, become increasingly scarce, more efficient means will have to be found to produce animal protein; output for a given feed input must be developed. This results in minimal costs for maintenance in comparison to the growth achieved. One way of doing this is to select for high prolificity but small size in dams, and for rapid growth rates in progeny. The interval between parturition and subsequent conception should be minimal.
