The latest addition to the ICBF presentations page is a presentation on ‘How ICBF and cattle genetics are changing the sustainability game’ put together by Kevin Downing ICBF.
This presentation was presented by Kevin Downing at the global conference on sustainable beef which took place last week in Lyrath Estate, Kilkenny. The Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (GRSB) is a global, multi-stakeholder initiative developed to advance continuous improvement in sustainability of the global beef value chain through leadership, science and multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration. The GRSB envisions a world in which all aspects of the beef value chain are environmentally sound, socially responsible and economically viable.
Kevin gave this presentation as part of the Thursday breakout session titled ‘Animal Health and Innovation in Action: How Cattle Genetics, Resistance and more are changing the Sustainability Game. This 90 minute session also included presentations from Claudio Cabral (Silvateam, Argentina) and Zsolt Szeidemann (Bayer Animal Health, Germany). Kevin’s presentation along with the work ongoing at ICBF were received exceptionally well by the conference attendees.
