150! that’s great 😃
Dear participants, thank you for joining and welcome to this second webinar on current and future livestock systems in Asia and the Pacific. We will start in about 15 minutes, around 9 am (Rome time) !
Good morning, good afternoon, good evening participants! Welcome and thank you for joining!
Good evening from Fiji
Please feel free to share your comments reactions and questions in the chat box here!
The moderator will capture these and address them during the Q&A session
I would also remind you to keep your micraphones muted while our speakers present
To Jess, the Zero Emission Acr sounds quite ambitious. Are farmers and other industry players comfortable with the reduction target?
to Jess, what is New Zealand strategy to reduce dependency on import of animal feed ?
Thank you Shoko for your question. Yes, in general, the New Zealand agriculture sector is supportive of the targets, our farmers recognise that we all need to take action to reduce emissions. Also, as our agriculutre sector is very reliant on exporting, our farmers recognise the need to reduce emissions to remain competitive.
Thank you Doste Mard, I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you Rafizah, as mentioned, most of our livestock is grazed on pasture all year around, with a reliance on feed when conditions are poor, e.g drought or flooding. We have not established a strategy for reducing dependency on the import of animal feed.
Dear Jess, Thank you for your answer. Much appreciated.
If anyone missed my email address in the presentation, it is Jessica.Anderson@mpi.govt.nz - please feel free to get in touch regarding any of the aspects covered in my presentation.
Thanks a lot Jess Anderson…

Good morning all, please find here my email: firstname.lastname@example.org in case you might have any question
Confinement as a solution for waste management is rather going down the road of CAFO, I think... What about combining crop agriculture and livestock raising so that the waste is put back in the nutrient cycle and the animals benefit from crop residues?
FAO, Aimable Uwizeye
Thank you Junko, yes CAFOs have a challenge to recycle available manure due to the high cost of transport and limited available lands. New design of livestock farms should consider the opportunity to recycle efficiently manure through the coupling of livestock-crop/grassland-energy production. The difficult is to transform the current large scale farms that are landless in several countries
Dear participants, this is a kind reminder to type your questions, comments and reactions here in the chat box.
Thank you, Aimable. I saw confinement as a solution to waste management in Fiji, hence the question/comment. I understand that they do not have a full scale CAFO, so why go in that direction?
Thank you for these insightful presentations and chatroom interaction. I am heading off but I wish I could join in some future parts of the series…
Can we have the presentations shared after the meeting?
Dear Yuriy, The session is recorded and a short report will be produced after the session that will include all the presentations, video and key messages. We will share it with the participants.
Great! Thanks you.
Dear Aladdin, thank you for joining! the next session will take place on 19 October it will focus on food systems. Further information will be shared in upcoming days.
Absence of nucleus farms for breeding purposes, limited land available to be used as grasslands, and limited use of advanced technologies have constrained the improvement of the livestock sector in a country like Sri Lanka, which I represent. The limited space available in homegardens has helped crop-livestock integration with appropriate techniques bein used for manure management. Further, we still do not have emission data from our own livestock enterprises. The technology and information dissemination is the need, to support evidence-based policy making to improve livestock systems in the future.
Jessica, what progress has been made in the production of methane vaccine and methane inhibitors?
Dear participants, please raise your hand if you would like to take the floor to ask your questions or share your views and experience.
Please also feel free to type your questions here in the chat box
formulation for low protein diet supplemented with amino acids is for all types of ruminants? it is suitable for dairy animals?
Jess what kind of methane inhibitors? natural or synthesized?
Hello Abdulrahman Mohammed, thanks for your question. Here is the link to the latest report from the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Research Centre, which contains more detail on the methane vaccines https://www.nzagrc.org.nz/page-2019,listing,604,nzagrc-highlights-2019.html
Dear ParticipantsWe will prepare a short report of this session and share the recording with you all.
The report recording of the 1st session entitled Monitoring Systems and Tools for Healthy Soils are available here:Recording: https://fao.zoom.us/rec/play/v5d8du_5qW83ToKQtwSDVvMqW466J62s2nIZqKJbzEzgAnELYVXyNeEba-rFeIS9nlrCfaS7wQyp-o65?startTime=1595586363000&_x_zm_rtaid=sQV-HlENTYmrmBYhfxr6vg.1596782881719.890858dd88b9862b10454b82fabe2d2b&_x_zm_rhtaid=567Report: http://www.fao.org/3/cb1244en/cb1244en.pdf
Hi Akiko - I think it is a combination of both natural and synthetic inhibitors
The 3rd session entitled “Food Systems Approach to Address Food Security and Socioeconomic Dimensions of Climate Change” will take place on Monday 19 October at 13:00-14:30.Further information will be shared in upcoming days.
Dear all, thank you for joining!
