“ Improving the sustainability of livestock farming requires more than controlling its environmental footprint. ”
“ European scientists and farmers are steering livestock farming towards a sustainable future. ”
“ Customized solutions for sustainability issues need to be found while side effects are taken into consideration. ”
“ Farm sustainability is a necessary but not sufficient condition to overall sustainability because a sustainable farm can occur in an unsustainable region. ”
“ Improving sustainability requires dealing with trade-off, it is important to understand how dimensions of sustainability are linked. ”
The project AnimalFuture was funded from 2017 to 2020 under the ERA-NET SusAn scheme. The project brought together 8 partner institutions and developed some research on the sustainability of European animal production systems. The project is now finished, but more results are still to come.
