Animal husbandry regained: The place of farm animals in sustainable agriculture

5 December 2012, 1.00 PM - 5 December 2012, 1.00 PM


Speaker: Professor John Webster


While world demand from a growing and more affluent human population is increasing rapidly, there are strong counter-arguments that we should eat less meat and pay more attention to environmental protection, animal welfare and human health and well-being.  This presentation identifies and explains the causes and contributors to current problems in animal husbandry, especially those related to 'factory farming', and advances arguments that may contribute to its successful re-orientation.
