Factors driving the demand for livestock products in the developing countries are primarily population growth, urbanisation and income growth. These factors are expected to continue to fuel the increase in milk and meat consumption in the next millennium, creating a veritable livestock revolution. This paper looks into the value of food consumption increases for meat, milk, fish and major cereals (1970-1995). it illustrates total meat consumption and per capita meat consumption by country; cereals used as feed by major region; and projected real prices, 2020.

This paper examines the adoption of two herd health control programmes designed for dairy smallholders in Central Thailand - for mastitis and for reproductive disease. The impact of adoption on private and social welfare is measured using the Policy Analysis Matrix. For adopters of the mastitis and reproductive health programmes, milk production increased by 173% and 48% respectively. Annual returns per cow were 166% and 154% greater respectively than the control group returns. Disease was significantly reduced on all adopter farms, and highest reductions were seen on adopter farms.

The papers presented here by the group covering the states of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) had detailed discussions on defining the livestock priorities, research requirements, and ways to achieve these with a focus on Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines and Thailand. Discussions were conducted in three sequential phases. In the first phase, each country identified the priority agro-ecological zones (AEZs) and, within each, priority production systems in which livestock research was required. The results are presented in a tabular form.

Animal production systems in South-East and east Asia are discussed in the context of their potential and challenges for research to address poverty alleviation, increased food production and food security and environmentally sustainable development. The projected human population increase, rising incomes and changing consumer preferences will accelerate the demand for, and access to food in the future. This will place considerable pressures on the use of natural resources (land, crops and animals).
