Holistic animal agriculture for nutrition pros: Episode 111


“All actions have some sort of impact on the system, but at times, people can assume reducing animal protein can have a vast and meaningful impact without considering other important tradeoffs that should be considered.”

Passionate about leaving the planet better than she found it and ensuring access to nutrient-dense foods including nutrient-dense animal proteins, Dr. Kim Stackhouse-Lawson works to clear up the misconception that animal agriculture isn’t sustainable. She offers insight and ideas for nutrition professionals about animal agriculture.

AgNext animal ag“I wish people knew how dedicated farmers, ranchers, and producers are to raising high-quality food and that there are scientists, my team specifically, looking for solutions to continue to reduce food system impacts from animal ag. We have improved, but technologies are advancing quickly,” says Stackhouse-Lawson.

She is the Director of AgNext and a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University. As Director of AgNext, she brings together producers, industry partners, and researchers to innovate real-time solutions for sustainability in animal agriculture. Prior to her time at CSU, Kim was the Director of Sustainability for JBS USA where she was responsible for coordinating the North American sustainability program, inclusive of the company’s beef, pork, poultry, case ready, transportation, and branded product business.
