This Research Front comprises selected papers from the 5th International Conference on Sustainable Animal Agriculture for Developing Countries (SAADC2015) held in Pattaya. SAADC was established by a non-profit volunteer group of researchers and academicians in 2007 with the primary objective of providing a platform for researchers, particularly those from developing countries, to share their research findings and to network for the promotion of sustainable animal agriculture in developing countries.
National Agricultural Manure Management Program – Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Options For Intensive Livestock Industries
The papers published in this Reearch Front comprise research outcomes from the National Agricultural Manure Management Program (NAMMP). This program was developed by a consortium of rural research and development corporations who recognised similar knowledge gaps in manure management systems across Australian intensive livestock production. These gaps included gathering information on the amount of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from different livestock and manure management systems, together with the sources and causes of GHG emissions in the different systems. The NAMMP consortium proved successful for both researchers and industry and is a model that should be considered for any future cross-sectoral programs.
This Research Front marks a very special milestone in the life of the ProSafeBeef programme (http://www.prosafebeef.eu/) funded by the European Community. It comprises the presentations, discussion and outcomes from an International Workshop entitled ‘Animal Production in a Changing World’ held in Clermont-Ferrand on 9–10 September 2009 and organised by INRA (France) under the auspices of the ProSafeBeef programme.
The National Dairy Alliance held its second Dairy Science Symposium in Mount Gambier, South Australia on 13 and 14 February 2006. This Research Front contains a selection of plenary papers presented at the Symposium by distinguished scientists developing technologies in the above areas, which are likely to have significant impacts on the future dairy industry.
This Research Front presents papers describing meat standards in animal production.
