Ag Economist Predicts Bright Future for Livestock Producers

Purdue University Ag Economist Farzad Taheripour says livestock producers should expect a bright future. According to Taheripour - more efficient land use, a stalled demand for corn ethanol and increased demand for meat in developing countries should help boost the industry in coming years. He says the livestock industry will grow - particularly toward poultry and pork - because of consumer taste preferences and global growth in both income and population. He expects the demand for poultry and pork to increase significantly.
