What is sustainability? What is the environmental impact of beef and dairy production in the US? What are the drivers of climate change? Dr. Sara Place is the Chief Sustainability Officer at Elanco Animal Health. Today we discuss greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), how cattle are a solution to providing a sustainable food source for humans, and why the Food and Agriculture Organization’s report on GHG production attributable to the beef and dairy industry is flawed. Cattle are the ultimate answer to sustainability by harnessing energy from the sun, utilizing human indigestible plants, and turning it into high quality digestible human protein.
