The Future of Animal Farming: Renewing the Ancient Contract
Does animal welfare have a place in sustainable farming, or do thedemands of a rising human population and the threat of climatechange mean that the interests of animals must be put aside? Can weimprove the way we keep animals and still feed the world – oris it a choice between ethics and economics?
The aim of this book is to challenge the "them-and-us" thinkingthat sets the interests of humans and farm animals against eachother and to show that to be really "sustainable," farming needs toinclude, not ignore, animal welfare. The authors of this remarkablebook come from a diversity of backgrounds: industry, animal welfareorganizations, academic institutions, and practical farming. Theyare united in arguing that farm animals matter and that sustainablefarming must have animal welfare at its ethical core, along withthe production of healthy, affordable food and care for theenvironment.
