Indiana Livestock Industry

The livestock industry has changed dramatically over the past 25 years, but in many ways it has stayed the same. Modern production systems allow farmers to increase the number of animals they raise at a lower cost while adhering to the highest environmental standards. At the same time, most Hoosiers’ remember the farms of their grandfather’s days and are concerned about changes. Yet the values and principles of family farming that were seen in previous generations have been passed down through the generations and the vast majority of today’s modern farms are run by the children and grandchildren of the same farm families. This document will address both the myths and the facts surrounding livestock farming in our state and provide a sound resource to enable communities to learn more about this important sector of our economy.
