Revisiting EFSA@EXPO: emerging issues in animal and plant health. Jan Slingenbergh, an independent adviser, began by saying that livestock pathogens are a new phenomenon – about 12,000 years old. He traced the growth in demand for animal protein, highlighting two peaks – the industrial revolution of the mid-19th century and then the “livestock revolution” of the 1990s, which was characterised by a rapid growth of animal protein production around the world, featuring mass rearing of “monoculture” animals. He concluded by arguing that if our ambition is to ensure sustainable livestock production, then we must re-examine what kind of food we really want and how we produce it.
