Introduction :

India ranks first in having the largest livestock population in the world. Livestock plays an important role in the national economy and in the socio economic development by augmenting family incomes and generating gainful employment in the rural areas, particularly for the landless, small and marginal farmers and women. With its 1.2 billion population and 9% GDP growth rate, India is rapidly emerging as one of the biggest markets in the world. Livestock sector contributes approximately 4% to GDP and 27% to agriculture GDP. Poultry and dairy sectors are the major sectors contributing to economic development.

The poultry sector has undergone a paradigm shift in structure and operation during the last two decades. It has transformed itself from a mere backyard activity into a major commercial activity with participation by big players as also successful implementation of contract poultry farming on a large scale. India is emerging as the world's 2nd largest poultry market with an annual growth of more than 14%, producing 61 million tonnes or 3.6 percent of global egg production.

The annual growth rate of egg production is 5-8%. Apart from this, India ranks 6th in broiler production (125 billion Rupees) with an annual output of 2.39 million tonnes of broiler meat, as per the estimates of the Ministry of Agriculture, Govt. of India. The total poultry industry is valued at about 350 billion rupees. The per capita consumption per year is approx 2.4 kg, which is much lower than the National Institute of Nutrition's recommended 11 kg.

In dairying, India ranks as the world's largest milk producer with an annual output of 108.5 million tonnes. With an annual growth rate of 4%, India 's milk production accounts for 15% of the total global output. India has 52% of cattle population and 15% of buffalo population. It ranks third in sheep population and second in goat population in the world. The Union Agriculture Ministry's Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries is focusing on increasing the animal population and productivity as a thrust area, offering financial assistance to the organizations.

On the other hand, Ministry of Food Processing Industries has its own programs to increase dairy processing and value added products to target export markets. This would facilitate India to achieve its potential of becoming a “Food Factory of the World”. Besides the Ministry of Agriculture and the Ministry of Food Processing Industries, the list of organizations playing a major role in the development of poultry and livestock industry is quite long. Prominent among them are: APEDA, National Meat & Poultry Processing Board (NMPPB), Poultry Federation of India (PFD), National Dairy Research Institute (NDRI), Progressive Dairy Farmers Association, National Dairy Development Board (NDDB), All India Poultry Breeders Association (AIPMA), India Poultry Equipment Manufacturers Association (IPEMA), Karnal Poultry Farmers Associations, Central Institute of Fisheries Technology, Kerala Livestock Development Board, National Egg Coordination Committee (NECC), Compound Livestock Feed Manufacturers Association (CLFMA), National Institute of Nutrition (NIN) India Poultry Journalists' Association (IPJA), Andhra Pradesh Poultry Federation (APPF) and Poultry Breeders Association (A.P.)

All these facts and figures vouch for India 's big potential to increase consumption of meat & meat products in domestic and International markets. Despite all these achievements, however, lack of advanced technology, inadequate cold storage facilities and processing equipment, particularly at the farm level, act as a major constraint in enabling this sector to take a quantum jump in production and productivity. What is needed is a strong platform for all stakeholders to share knowledge and technology.

It is against this backdrop that Media Today Group has decided to launch the “INTERNATIONAL POULTRY & LIVESTOCK EXPO 2012” (IPL expo), an International event, concurrently with the 2nd edition of Dairy Tech India 2012 on 25-26-27 August 2012 at Palace Ground, Bengaluru , India . This would bring under one roof leading poultry and Livestock players of India, specially Poultry and Dairy equipment manufacturers, breeders, food products exporters, experts & leaders from the industry, along with, of course, farmers' delegations - in fact all stakeholders.
