The task of the German Livestock Association (BRS) is to promote German breeding and animal husbandry – particularly for the animal species cattle and pig. This is achieved through the development of rules and principles that require a uniform approach, through the joint representation towards policy, the authorities and other organizations at national and international level, through cooperation with science, the support of research projects in all fields of animal breeding and animal husbandry and by promoting the quality of livestock production.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) leads international efforts to defeat hunger.
Livestock Systems-Ruminant livestock species such as cattle, buffaloes, sheep and goats are generally much more dependent directly on the environment in which they live for fodder and feed resources than are pigs and chickens.
Hay & Forage Preservation Feed conservation techniques are increasingly necessary in ruminant farming. The transition from extensive livestock farming to intensive or mixed systems requires ensuring a timely and sufficient supply of feed throughout the year. Weather conditions depending on the season or due to climate change require feed storage
