The feasibility of using non-cereal grain feed resources as the basis for intensive poultry production is increasing slowly. Sugar cane and african oil palm offer most perspectives as the basis for sustainable intensive livestock production including poultry. The development of feeding systems from these non-conventional feed resources will require an equally non-conventional approach to the design of the production system. It is probable that the most appropriate species of poultry will be ducks and geese and that these should be complemented with ruminant animals in farming systems that integrate crops and livestock with efficient recycling of residues, by-products and wastes.
