Succesful companies and farmers of the future will need to:
- produce with high efficiency
- use minimal energy, water, nutrients and other resources,
- cause a minimal carbon footprint, and causing minimal GHG (Green House Gasses) waste and effluents.
Sustainable farming, respecting animal welfare, wildilfe and the environment are obvious other key conditions.
The coming years many farms and companies will be transforming their operations, to adapt to the modern:
- 'license to produce'
- new regulations and standards.
New animal production facilities and farm management systems must be designed taking these factors on board. High yields (per animal or per hectare, respecting animal welfare) and minimizing cost of production and at the same time having a minimal negative impact on water pollution, GHG emissions, and animal welfare will determine the competitive advantage of future succesful companies, farmers and other producers.
