Book
At a time of increased concern over animal welfare and environmental degradation, the global demand for animal-based protein is necessitating the development and use of emerging agricultural technology.Focusing on livestock production systems, this comprehensive text addresses how the growing diversity of global food demands will be met in the futu...
Article
Knowledge of the function of human and animal genes and their interactions is rapidly increasing as a result of the completion of sequencing efforts for the human, bovine and other genomes. Through transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics, we have the capacity to study the health effects of food compounds at the molecular level. The same tools...
Article
Natural resource management practices were surveyed on 375 northern Australian beef properties in 8 regions during 1996-97. These producers represented a broad cross section of the beef industry in terms of geographical location, size of enterprise, and herd and ownership structures. More than 48% of producers reported land degradation (erosion, sa...
Article
During 1996 and 1997, a survey examined the business activities of 375 selected northern Australian beef producers during the 1991 and 1992 to 1995 and 1996 financial years. The producers represented a broad cross-section of the northern beef industry in terms of geographical location, size of enterprise and herd, and ownership structures. The surv...
Article
Breeding herd performance and husbandry were surveyed on 375 northern Australian beef properties in 8 regions during 1996 and 1997. Mean branding rates ranged from 62.6% in the Northern Territory to 77.1% in the Maranoa South West regions of Queensland with considerable variation within regional herds. The proportion of herds using controlled matin...
Article
The herd performance of 375 northern Australian beef producers during the 1991 and 1992 to 1995 and 1996 financial years was surveyed in 1996 and 1997. Estimates were made of annual liveweight gain from production systems based on native and improved pastures together with hormonal growth promotant use and supplementation practices. The most common...
Article
The land and pasture development practices of 375 northern Australian beef properties in 8 regions were surveyed during 1996-97. These properties represented a broad cross-section of the beef industry in terms of geographical location, enterprise and herd size, and ownership structures. Both tree clearing and killing were more common in Queensland...

In the next 5‐10 years, anticipated advances in livestock science promise to be exciting and frenetic. The Horizons In Livestock Sciences conference, with the theme of The New Biology , has given us a preview of this future with its enormous potential and responsibility. Selected papers from this conference are published in this special edition of...
Article
Examines the potential of plant species to provide hydrocarbons and seed oils as alternative sources of those chemicals and liquid gaseous fuels presently derived from petroleum. A wide range of these substances can be obtained from plants; possibilities exist through management and genetics to improve yield and chemical composition. A well defined...
Article
Full-text available
Livestock production is doubly impacted by climate change — it both contributes to the phenomenon and must adjust to its consequences. Whilst adaptation is being achieved, the true mitigation potential for livestock production is yet to be quantified. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that demand for animal products is escalating quickly, es...
