High-quality livestock products for a growing world populationIn 2020, there are around 7.8 billion people living on Earth. For the year 2100, the United Nations forecast 10.87 billion people and, as a result, a continued growth in demand for animal protein. Meeting this demand while, at the same time, conserving the planet's resources is an enormous challenge for companies.
Food that has been specially adapted to the needs of the animals ensures that health and growth are optimally supported in every phase of life. Here, the precise dosage and mixing of raw materials and feed additives is crucial. Data from the stables play an important role in the rearing process. These data, which are provided by IoT-enabled equipment, help to monitor the health of the animals or make growth forecasts. Data are also important during processing, for example to ensure traceability and quality control, to ultimately make it possible for retailers and consumers to trace the origin of a product and its production conditions.

Siemens Competence Center for the Animal Protein Chain
Brazil has been the world's largest exporter of beef since 2004. Siemens supports the local industry with the Competence Center for the Animal Protein Chain, which also supplies digitization solutions to other Latin American countries from Brazil. Technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence, robotics, and cloud and edge computing, enable producers of meat and other animal protein products to increase their productivity and sustainability in the future. This includes the establishment of connectivity for the optimal use of the generated data and the absolute security and traceability of these data, for example those about the origin and health of the animals from the farm all the way to the consumer.
