LIVESTOCK project workshop 13 - 15 June 2022

Livestock workshop

What makes a circular livestock system sustainable, and how can this be measured? This was some of the questions discussed by project participants, industry partners and Nordic experts during the gathering in the LIVESTOCK projectin June

A lot of work has already been done in the project, with e.g. development of models and results for each individual livestock system. In the last part of the project, scenarios for 2040 will be created for various trends, and it will be analysed how sustainable these are, both environmentally, socially and economically.

Some of the topics discussed were the possibilities for transformation towards a circular food system in 2040 compared to the current intensification trend, and how it can affect animal welfare, social aspects for the farmer and the local community, economic effects and what political instruments are needed. The project will continue until the summer of 2023 and the results will be published in scientific articles.
