      This chapter highlights the following facts: the share of all animal products in human diets is continuing to increase in developing countries, income growth is a major driver of increasing consumption, urbanization of populations accelerates consumption, and population growth and structure have impacts on total consumption. Global animal production is shifting from Cited by: Livestock Economics Marketing & Business Management INTRODUCTION Livestock Economics is a discipline that provides a comprehensive range of Economic skills and Techniques tailored to the specific requirements of the livestock sector. The service range reflects the diversity of the Economics discipline spanning both quantitative and qualitative .

      Lactating cattle in peak production consume diets with as much as 60 percent of dry material from grains and high-energy by-products and 40 percent from forages (whole plant crops such as hay or silage). Lactating cattle at lower levels of production and mature cattle between lactations consume diets comprised mostly of forages.   In the intensive mixed systems, food-feed crops are vital ruminant livestock feed resources. The prices of food-feed crops are likely to increase at faster rates than the prices of livestock products (Rosegrant et al. ). Changes in stover production will vary widely from region to region out to (Herrero et al. ). Large increases Cited by:

of livestock sector is hampered by low levels of knowledge about improved inputs and management practices, which has impeded the growth in productivity in the sector. It is against this back drop that this study analyzed the training needs of livestock farmers in Benue State, Nigeria.

METHODOLOGY. The livestock industry is shifting from a traditional agricultural commodity based market to a product market.

This increased resolution of demand for specified attributes has required greater coordination to maintain control of the product through segmented market channels and has placed stress on commodity price mechanisms. This project seeks to evaluate the economic. The livestock sector is one of the most dynamic parts of the agricultural economy Livestock uses 60 % of all land used for agriculture and pasture 30 % of the the surface of the planet 33 % of the cropland to produce feed The livestock sector made and makes important contributions to food security and poverty reduction.

* The data regarding livestock products have been obtained from Pa kistan (a) valued at average wholesale prices of fair ave rage quality for the y ear into numerous high value products. Furthermore, the livestock industry complements other industries such as tanneries and blacksmiths.

The price in a particular year may be as high as percent ( + ) or as low as percent ( - ) of the annual average. The smaller the variabili- ty factor (the closer the high and low points are to the monthly price index), the more reliable is the monthly price index.

Cattle price seasonality is defined as regular or average cattle price patterns occurring within a year. Typically, seasonal patterns for livestock are developed on a calendar year basis and crops are developed based on crop-years.

Price changes constitute one of the elements contributing to the risk of farming. Farm prices have four important movements: long-run trend, seasonal variation, cyclical movements, and ir-regular fluctuations.

Chapter 10 Livestock Production Systems Justin D. Derner, Leigh Hunt, Kepler Euclides Filho, John Ritten, Judith Capper, and Guodong Han Abstract Rangelands, 50% of the earth’s land surface, produce a renewable resource of cellulose in plant biomass that is uniquely converted by ruminant livestock into animal protein for human consumption.

The variability factor of means that approximately two-thirds of the time the price in a particular year will likely fall between the range of 89% and % of the annual average price.

The smaller the variability factor (the closer the points are to the monthly price index), the more reliable the monthly index. The seasonality in production and marketings results in price swings which are also seasonal. These seasonal price swings are part of the total price variation which includes the cyclical and secular (long term) components of cattle prices.

Such price movements can have a significant impact on cattle.
