We continue featuring the Meat: the four futures series with our first exploration of four different futures for meat - Efficient meat 2.0.
Today we farm and eat meat at a scale not matched in human history. We raise 80 billion animals a year for food at a really low cost to the consumer. Here we look at how technology, research, and innovation have made animal agriculture much more efficient.
Do you see efficiency improvements in animal agriculture as essential for feeding a growing population? Or do you think we should eat less meat, switch to plant-forward diets or create competitive meat alternatives?
We speak with agriculture economists, pig farmers, poultry geneticists, and others who make the best case for an efficient meat future.
