Animal nutrition cited in environmental sustainability conference

Filed under:

Garbage in, garbage out. That is the theme that should go through the mind of every person who eats meat, but I doubt it does. Do you have any idea of the quality of food that cows and chickens eat?

That has a direct effect on how nutritious that meat is when you eat it, and unless "free range" or "organic" is part of your vocabulary, you probably do not want to know much about the nutrition of many animals used for human food.

What about the waste these animals leave behind? That also is a reflection of what they eat, and much of this waste finds its way into the public water system as well. Last month, the sustainability of animal nutrition was discussed in Canada with global experts to talk about this. Want to see what was talked about? See this.
