Anthropology and Sociology Seminar Series : RAISING RARE BREEDS: DOMESTICATION, EXTINCTION AND MEAT IN THE ANTHROPOCENE Other events...
Over the past three decades, the intensive livestock industryís dependence on a small number of high-productivity hybrids has resulted in the extinction of a domestic animal breed globally each month (FAO 2015). This poses a significant risk to food security, as the heritage breeds under threat possess valuable qualities, such as pest resistance and climate adaptability, which may prove invaluable in the rapidly changing climatic and environmental conditions in which we now live. Recognising this, a number of Australian farmers are working to conserve animal genetic diversity within regenerative farming models through building niche markets for the meat, fibre, dairy and eggs of endangered breeds. In this seminar, I will present initial findings from the project and will be seeking to learn of synergies with the current work of the discipline groupís members.
