|Sustainable Animal Production - Visions for the 21th century
Welcome to our Website!
Sustainable animal production is a system which preserves
the basis of life of future generations. The foundations,
conditions and perspectives for animal production are exceedingly
variable in different parts of the world. This project focusses on the future supply
and quality of food
for humans and animals, animal welfare and health, the effects of animal
production on the environment, the influences of new technologies, future
animal production sites and global trade.
These pages contain the Conference Sustainable Animal Production , the documentation of
a multidisciplinary project to develop a global vision
for the future of the production of food of animal origin.
This site is also intended as a forum to continue the dialogue begun in the virtual conference and workshop series "Sustainable Animal Production".
was realized by a
consortium of scientists from four research
institutions in northern Germany and includes a virtual conference
launched in October, 1999, and followed by a
series of real
workshops held from June to October, 2000.
Here you will find
abstracts of papers presented at the workshops, an archive of the
Internet conference and an ongoing open forum for your comments.
