This second edition of the year continues to look forward, and
this month's WATT Global Media 100-year anniversary series
article examines the future of feed ingredients.
Crystal ball gazing is always difficult, particularly longer term,
but we hope that we have been able to give some indication of how
feed ingredient use is expected to develop.
We've also indulged in another look into the future, but this
time with a geographic focus. Our lead story pulls together various data sources detailing how the economies of certain Asian countries are expected to change, how poultry
production and consumption will increase, and companies in the region to watch.
In the 1980s, few would have predicted the slowdown in the Japanese economy or
that chicken consumption in China would have been so badly hit by food safety scandals.
The changing global political outlook and the ever-present threat of disease are two
more unknowns with potentially enormous implications that cannot be predicted with
any certainty, but what our lead story tries to do is to identify a few companies that are
already leaders in their field and of a sufficient size to make the most of an otherwise
favorable economic outlook.

Great debates
We also look at different approaches to antibiotics use and which may be better at
slowing the advance of antibiotic resistance, preserving a future where antibiotics still
work in humans and animals. The antibiotics debate is unlikely to conclude soon, but
our feature offers some food for thought.
We also look at another debate in this issue, the optimal stocking density for freerange layers, and bring you findings from studies that look at how stocking densities
may affect welfare. ■
