Environmental stewardship policy statement updated


January 28, 2016 – An ASAS policy statement regarding the “Co-promotion of Environmental Stewardship and Production Efficiency” has been updated. It joins a list of several other policy statements updated by members of the ASAS Public Policy Committee.

Sustainable food and fiber production requires control of greenhouse gas (GHG) production and avoiding damage to air, water and soil. Fortunately, a growing body of evidence related to the production of animal products suggests that production efficiency leads to environmental stewardship.
