Is 'more efficient' food production in conflict with animal welfare? : 2050 Food - Lecture Series Other events...
A public lecture by Marion Stamp Dawkins, Professor of Animal Behaviour, University of Oxford.

Cost: Free, but RSVP required. Register online: https://2050food2-eorg.eventbrite.com.au/#

Greater efficiency may for some people be an obvious goal for providing food security for an increasing human population but what are the implications for animal welfare? Will greater agricultural efficiency inevitably lead to lower standards of welfare? This lecture will ask whether there is really a conflict between human well-being and animal welfare and argue that good animal welfare can provide the basis of healthy safe food for humans, benefits for the environment and productive commercial farming.
