With many industries concentrating on reducing their carbon footprint, livestock product producers will also have to meet changing regulations. Industry emissions are mainly from manure handling, feed use and the use of good quality land-to-produce feed. Some solutions to limit environmental damage caused by the global livestock industry include using feeds that boost soil carbon sequestration to limit carbon emissions, using manure to produce bio energy and ensuring better feed conversion.
