Livestock farming must commit to sustainability

Livestock farming faces a number of important challenges. On the one hand, the sector must make a transition to more sustainable management practices. On the other hand, farmers and producers must respond to developments in the field of automation, digitisation and globalisation. These are all topics that require a professional translation into Dutch, German, Spanish or any other foreign language. A translation by professionals who are fully aware of developments in the agricultural sector, such as translation agency AgroLingua. 

Sustainable and animal-friendly
Animal health and welfare are key priorities in the government policy of many countries. For a continued licence to produce, livestock farming must become more animal-friendly and sustainable. That means that activities in the livestock sector must respect animals, humans and the environment. Various climate and environmental measures are therefore part of the government's plans. For example, livestock farmers must strive to reduce greenhouse gas and ammonia emissions, as well as reducing the use of antibiotics. Such measures require, among other things, changes to how animals are housed and their diet. In the case of dairy farming, this sector must also comply with international regulations. For example, they must ensure that emissions remain below the phosphate ceiling set by the EU. What this means in concrete terms is reducing the phosphate output via manure and restricting herd growth.

Future-oriented innovation is sustainable innovation
Agri & Food is a top sector in the Netherlands. The goal is to excel globally in innovation and food production efficiency. Innovation aimed at sustainable business is a key factor in the agricultural sector going forward. For example, it’s very important for the pig sector to reduce the health and environmental risks in regions with high concentrations of pig farming. Future-oriented innovation is synonymous with sustainable innovation in this sector, but this equally applies in dairy farming and poultry farming.
Supermarkets have a major impact on this switch toward sustainability. They face critical and demanding consumers every day. Consumers who want a guilt-free experience. They prefer to see cows grazing in the meadow and pigs or chickens being reared in housing that respects the natural behaviour of animals and is environmentally friendly. Sustainable business is therefore of great importance in order to gain and safeguard consumer confidence in the future.
