The demand of animal protein is mainly driven by growing global population and rapid urbanization. According to Genus Plc., the global urban population is expected to increase from 4 billion in 2015 to 6.3 billion in 2050. This rapid increase in urban population continuously leads to increased demand for animal protein. To cater to the rising demand of animal proteins, farmers are increasingly adopting advanced genetic technologies for larger-scale production and quality breeds.
