Dr Michael Lee has been invited to present the Global Farm Platform’s vision of how sustainable ruminant livestock production can make a valuable contribution to food security at Innovate 2014. Dr Lee will present on Sustainable intensification (mixed crop and livestock systems).
Innovate, run by the American Society of Animal Science, brings together leading experts every year to address challenges facing the livestock industry. To meet the projected global food demand by 2050, new knowledge of animal genomics, physiological processes, nutrient utilization and animal well-being must lead to new technologies and management practices that are economically, environmentally and socially sustainable. The meeting will be held in Brainerd, Minnesota, 5th – 7th October 2014.
