Researching Danish livestock production for the future
This project explores ways to envision and generate a new research basis for a future green livestock production in Denmark. Merging anthropology with veterinary and animal science, the aim is to identify and proactively repurpose the theoretical and practical knowledge that conditions Danish cattle production.
Through collaborative interdisciplinary fieldwork Cattle Crossroads focuses on the knowledge junctions where scientific, theoretical and practical choices are made about how to produce cattle in a green future. Exploring how knowledge about livestock production is articulated, codified, practiced, contested, funded and shared among different professionals in the field, the project will build a capacity to navigate the crossroads that animal production spurs in an era of climate change and spark a renewed debate about de-growth, as is appropriate for the Earth’s finite resource conditions.
