The future of livestock activities is largely debated at a global scale (greenhouse gas emission for example), but at more local scales, livestock activities also contribute in diverse ways to territorial development. This article proposes a literature review, describing how researchers study the links between livestock activities and the territory. We highlight three different sets of approaches: the first are focused on relations between livestock farming systems and natural resources through landscape / spatial analyses. Spatial dynamics of livestock activities are on the focus in these studies. Secondly, livestock farming systems are analyzed through a diversity of farming systems that exist within a territory. These studies take into account the diversity of functions provided by livestock activities (productive and non-productive ones), and the complementarities between livestock activities and other ones. The third set of approaches considers livestock farming systems as technical systems structured around human groups. Social dynamics of livestock activities are on the focus through the evolution of identities, norms and collective action. Finally, some publications combine two or three sets of approaches. The combination of these three approaches is useful in a landscape and territorial perspective, but remains exceptional as it requires inter-disciplinary research. This combination appears as a challenge for scientific research on livestock farming systems.

The New Zealand pastoral industry has many simultaneous drivers including market and policy compliance that operate from the local to the global scale. The ability to adapt to these multiple drivers against a background of constrained natural resources and climate change is vital to the continued success of New Zealand’s pastoral industry. Here we describe a case study based in the Horizon’s region where we worked with pastoral sector stakeholders to apply a process in which an integrated systems perspective was used to identify and explore the impact of drivers on dairy and sheep/ beef systems. Drawing from this process we have designed a generic framework including tools and processes, to enable policy, farmers, and agribusiness to collectively explore the influence of multiple drivers on the future behaviour of farm systems and associated value chains.

A review of the international literature was carried out, in order to describe how researchers study links between livestock farming and local development (i.e. ‘territory’). We highlight three different sets of approaches: the first focused on relations between livestock farming systems and natural resources through landscape / spatial analyses. Secondly, livestock farming systems are analyzed through the diversity of the farming systems existing within a territory. The third set of approaches considers livestock farming systems as technical systems structured around human groups. Finally, some publications combine two or three sets of approaches. The combination of these three approaches is useful in a landscape and territorial perspective.
