324 Animal Agriculture and the Environment (includes student competition)

Poster Session
ASA Section: Environmental Quality
Animal agriculture is essential for providing protein to an ever growing world population.  Adaptive management strategies that address global climate change, developed in harmony with other agricultural activities, are critical to meet rising consumer demands while also maintaining or improving production sustainability and global food security.  There is an immediate need to understand the impact that animal agriculture has upon the climate and other ecosystem services.  The purpose of this session is to provide information on the nature, risks, costs, and solutions to environmental issues associated with animal agriculture.
