Prior to the EU Outlook Agriculture conference in Brussels on 9th–10th December 2021, EFFAB and FABRE TP would like to invite you to the latest Breeders talk Green Webinar discussing the future of animal breeding. Over the course of the last 12 months, the series has offered several fruitful discussions.
The impact of human activities on the planet and the right to access healthy food pose several different challenges to the global food system. These challenges require us to reduce food waste, produce healthier and more sustainable food whilst using fewer natural resources and respecting the environment. Meeting this urgent demand requires sustainable and responsible improvements to farmed animals. Animal breeding and genetics offer unique opportunities to positively contribute to these challenges.
Terrestrial and aquatic farmers and society need solutions to create a more sustainable animal farming sector. We think that animal genetic improvement is a core part of the solution and the pathway for improvement of farming sectors – from conventional to organics. Breeders and farmers need better tools and information on farmed animals to make informed breeding decisions and more balanced and precise selection for desired traits that are essential for sustainability.
But, what are these tools, and how can we use them?
EFFAB and FABRE TP members, would like to engage in discussion about the ongoing research activities in the European Animal Breeding sector and provide an answer to these societal challenges.
We hope to see you at our next session. Sign up today to secure your virtual spot.
The speaker list will be announced shortly.
