The term livestock systems embraces all aspects of the supply and use of livestock commodities, including the distribution and abundance of livestock, the different production systems in which they are raised, estimates of consumption and production now and in the future, the people engaged in livestock production and the benefits and impacts. Conventional and organic livestock production systems were compared on different aspects of sustainability, including economy, productivity, environmental impact, animal welfare and public health. For many sustainability aspects and animal species, insufficient data were found to conclude on differences between the systems.
In the integrated farming system the defects of mixed farming is overcome by proper planning, monitoring and execution of work according to size of the farm, farm resources, Agro climatic etc. In this type, the type of livestock species or poultry enterprises are selected based on the availability of feed, fodder, water resources of the farm. The United States Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) is amending the organic livestock and poultry production requirements. The rule is withdrawn, effective View the Federal Register Notice of the withdrawal and other historical documents.
Extensive beef cattle production in Portugal There are two principal extensive beef cattle production sys-tems in Portugal. One is located in the north and the centre and the other one in the south of Portugal (Table 2). The extensive animal production systems are characterised by the use of low capital inputs but with production costs onlyFile Size: 57KB. These farms have a higher level of extensive production than other extensive livestock systems in Southwestern Spain and other Spanish organic farms; the former with more pasture surfaces, lower stocking density and a higher proportion of autochthonous breeds, in accordance with OF by: 1.

For that reason, those looking to start a small-scale, organic farm and raise livestock have a greater chance than ever before to take advantage of the new market for organic goods.
This book will show any potential farmer how to start raising livestock and marketing it to the organic, natural lifestyle community that so fervently seeks out these products/5(4). Extensive farming agriculture (as opposed to intensive farming) is an agricultural production system that uses small inputs of labour, fertilizers and capital relative to the land area being used.
•In livestock extensive farming commonly refers to cattle, sheep and goat farming in File Size: 1MB. This paper attempts to analyze the impact of organic livestock farming in dehesas through the analysis and review of the carbon footprint of seven extensive organic farming systems in various dehesas in the southwest of Spain.
The method used was life cycle assessment, taking into account both greenhouse emissions and carbon : Andrés Horrillo, Paula Gaspar, Miguel Escribano. Intensive Livestock Farming discusses the process of breeding cattle and the products it provides.
It describes the developments in calf production. The book identifies the intensive systems of milk production. The technology involved in the production of beef is covered in some chapters of the text.
The EKO prefix (e.g. EKO-pigs; EKO-milk) is legally protected and can only be used after written permission from Skal. Organic livestock production differs from conventional systems.
In organic systems the animals are allowed a larger housing area (including outdoor access), have obligatory straw bedding, and are fed organic feed and roughage (sows).Cited by: ORGANIC LIVESTOCK REQUIREMENTS (continued) Organic livestock must be raised in a way that Extensive and organic livestock systems book their health and natural behavior: Access to the outdoors - Shade - Clean, dry bedding - Shelter - Space for exercise - Fresh air - specified conditions (e.g.
inclement weather). Ruminant Clean drinking water - Direct sunlight. Introduction to Organic livestock farming: Organic livestock farming is one among various farming systems that are close to nature & ethics.
The use of veterinary drugs & synthetic products in conventional animal farming is continuously increasing the threat to human health. Organic livestock farming method is a land-based activity. Charles Francis is Professor of Agronomy and Horticulture, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he teaches agroecology, organic farming, and lessons from urban sprawl about long-term land use.
His research is on rotations, cover crops, peri-urban farming, and integrated local food systems. His extension appointment is in cropping systems and rural landscape design.

The similarities between the extensive and organic systems are clearly visible, which makes the transition from an extensive system to an organic one relatively easy (Nardone et al., In contrast, Extensive Farming is one in which more and more land is brought under cultivation to increase the output produced.
This article excerpt is presented to give a clear view of the difference between intensive and extensive farming, followed in different parts of the world. Content: Intensive Farming Vs Extensive Farming.
Comparison Chart. Livestock production systems in developing countries: status, drivers, trends H. Steinfeld, T. Wassenaar & S. Jutzi Animal Production and Health Division, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, Rome, Italy Summary This paper describes and assesses the current status of livestock production.
The relationship between extensive livestock systems and biodiversity has been examined in a case study on the Island of Islay (UK). As an introduction literature and relevant policy regulations have been reviewed. Farmers have been interviewed on agricultural, ecological and socio-economic aspects of extensive livestock by: 6.
These systems, which occur on six of the seven continents (Antarctica is the exception), are highly diverse, ranging from low-input, pastoral production systems located in arid and semiarid environments on communally owned lands to highly intensive production systems in more mesic environments which can integrate livestock-crop-forage systems Cited by: 9.
Systems development: quality and safety in organic livestock products Foreword Sustaining Animal Health and Food Safety in Organic Farming (SAFO) is a European Commission funded project, with the objective to contribute to improved animal health and food safety in organic livestock production systems in existing and candidate member.
Organic livestock farming has an explicit goal of improved animal health and welfare compared with non-organic farming. Zander and Hamm found that among seven additional ethical attributes, consumers in five European countries generally ranked “animal welfare” the highest, in some cases ranking it second to “regional production.”However, there are many different conceptions of Cited by: INDEX SN Chapter Page No 1 Prelusion -Significance of livestock and poultry in Indian economy Livestock and Poultry census - role of livestock and poultry in Indian agriculture.

Organic livestock production systems and appropriate development in relation to public expectations John E. Hermansen Danish Institute of Agricultural Sciences Department of Agricultural systems Research Centre Foulum, P.O. Box 50 DK Tjele, Denmark Introduction There has been a tremendous growth in numbers of organic farms in EU.
Extensive farming most commonly means raising sheep and cattle in areas with low agricultural productivity, but includes large-scale growing of wheat, barley, cooking oils and other grain crops in areas like the Murray-Darling Basin inowing to the extreme age and poverty of the soils, yields per hectare are very low, but the flat terrain and very large farm sizes mean yields.Some grazing livestock systems that feed on permanent grasslands can also be considered as extensive livestock systems, if grass valorisation is done by grazing and very little use of inputs, labor and capital.
To be viable, extensive livestock production systems need to reduce their charges and to stand out with a high additional value for. The principles of ecology outlined in the introductory book are essential for the success of any organic enterprise and this includes the importance of soil and its continuing improvement because soil is essential to the production of feed for livestock.
This book covers some principles of organic livestock farming plus extensive case studies.
