Authors : Sung-Heon Chung, Jae-Sung Lee, Min-Jeong Kim and Hong-Gu Lee

Abstract: Since the beginning of the 2000’s, the livestock industry of Korea has faced the need for paradigm shift from the existing quantitative growth to a sustainable qualitative growth, reflecting such changes in the domestic and international circumstances as the market liberation by FTA, the rise in international grain prices, the outbreak of a disease like the foot-and-mouth disease, the tightening of regulations on the livestock industry and the increasing demand for safe livestock products. For sustainable qualitative growth of the livestock industry, it is essential to support the upstream livestock industries such as feed industry, animal drug industry, livestock equipment and disease control. Therefore in this study, the current conditions of livestock and upstream industries of Korea are introduced focusing on the status of feed, cattle, swine and chicken industries and the expansion in overseas market on the basis of the plans to promote the development of future livestock industry in Republic of Korea (ROK).
