As Europe forms its strategies to deliver on the EU Green Deal's goals of net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050, restoring biodiversity, and moving to a clean, circular economy, our  debate will focus on the future of the livestock sector in Europe and what sustainability measures will entail for animal health and welfare in livestock production.
