Humanity’s main societal and epistemic transitions also mirror changes in its approach to the food system. This particularly holds true for human–animal interactions and the consumption of animal source foods (red meat ...
Plantain (Plantago lanceolata) reduces the environmental impact of farmed red deer (Cervus elaphus)
(Oxford University Press (OUP) on behalf of the American Society of Animal Science, 2020-07)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of plantain (Plantago lanceolata L.) on water dynamics and balance, as well as nitrogen (N) excretion by red deer (Cervus elaphus L.) as a potential forage tool to ...
Functional traits, morphology, and herbage production of vernalised and non-vernalised chicory cv. Choice (Cichorium intybus l.) in response to defoliation frequency and height
Chicory (Cichorium intybus L.) used in pastoral systems has the attributes required of a forage species to reduce animal urinary nitrogen loading to soil, increase milk production, and enhance milk fatty acid profile to ...
We are the Earth and the Earth is us: How palates link foodscapes, landscapes, heartscapes, and thoughtscapes

Humans are participating in the sixth mass extinction, and for the first time in 200,000 years, our species may be on the brink of extinction. We are facing the greatest challenges we have ever encountered, namely how to ...
Grazing dairy cows with low milk urea nitrogen breeding values excrete less urinary urea nitrogen
There is an increasing pressure on temperate pastoral dairy production systems to reduce environmental impacts, coming from the inefficient use of N by cows in the form of excessive urinary N excretion and subsequent N ...
