The Sustainable Food Trust recently held an event to discuss the question: ‘What role for grazing livestock in a world of climate change and diet-related disease?’
50 scientists, policy-makers, campaigners and industry representatives were invited “ to take a fresh look at the issues and the evidence, in order to agree the best way forward for the environment, for human health and for farmers.”
Sessions focused on themes such as “Agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and sinks”, “Legumes, nitrogen and feed efficiency” and “Meat and Milk” just to mention a few.
A blog-post that summarises the event and links to videos from the sessions during the day can be found here. FCRN associate Elin Röös attended the seminar – see the blog-post with her take on the day; Grazing livestock in a world of climate change: do they have a role?
