Summary: Currently, livestock produces more than one-third of the world’s protein, and ruminant animals (ie, cattle, sheep and goats) have the unique capacity to convert nondigestible biomass (ie, grasses and forages) into high-quality protein. These factors highlight the need for prudent use of ruminants to optimize land use for production of adequate quantity and quality of protein. Any recommendations for changes in agriculture should consider impact on climate but must also focus on making optimal use of natural resources for creating healthy diets.
