Integrated Management Systems for Livestock
Sustainable Livestock Production requires that tight product specifications are met profitably while environmental impact is minimised and welfare promoted. These requirements may conflict and the inevitable compromises merely release the immediate pressure while avoiding a long term solution. Other industries have successfully resolved similar tensions by the application of process control techniques. This conference focussed on this approach, termed integrated management systems (IMS) for livestock.
