This book discusses the Livestock Revolution which is occurring in some developing countries and is foreseen to become a wider phenomenon over the next 20 years, due to increases in population, urbanisation and incomes. As a result, a gigantic increase in demand for meat and milk is predicted. The many implications for animal agriculture in developing countries, and globally, are considered. The recurring question addressed is whether the Livestock Revolution will help or hinder the alleviation of poverty amongst resource-poor livestock farmers. As well as the Livestock Revolution, topics address include poverty mapping, impact of trade agreements, biosecurity constraints to trade, environmental implications, the role of animal science research and GM technology, development aid, knowledge management and dissemination, and case studies of the milk sector in Bolivia, Kenya and Nepal. The book will be invaluable to all concerned with animal agriculture and poverty alleviation, be they lecturers, students, policy makers, researchers or practitioners, including farmers and their advisors.
