Farm environmental impact: innovation and progress in animal agriculture

In this webinar, the panel discusses the pressing need within the food and agriculture industry to ‘do more with less’, focusing specifically on cattle in North America, and how innovation has led to improved sustainability over animal life cycles.

They consider Cargill’s BeefUp Sustainability initiative, which is committed to achieving a 30% reduction in greenhouse gas intensity across its North American beef supply chain; the Yield Lab’s Manure Challenge, which guides start-ups to come up with solutions that capture manure-based nutrients; and, Texas Tech’s work developing more-efficient cattle breeds.

Panel:
  • Heather Tansey, sustainability director, animal nutrition and protein, Cargill
  • Brandon Day, chief operating officer, the Yield Lab Institute
  • Dale Woerner, Cargill endowed professor in sustainable meat science department of animal and food sciences, Texas Tech University
