Promoting a sustainable livestock sector in Europe

About us

The Animal Task Force is a European Public-Private Platform. We promote a sustainable and competitive livestock sector in Europe. We are a leading body of expertise, representing key stakeholders from industry, famers and research from across Europe.

We are a knowledge based lobby organisation working on the forefront of livestock related issues in Europe. Our members are representatives from knowledge providers, industry organisations and farmer organisations and have expertise of every aspect within the livestock value chain; from feeding and breeding to production and processing. We unite and enable them to create an integrated approach that is needed to contribute to the environmental and societal challenges our mission involves.

Our goals are to stress the importance of sustainable livestock production for Europe’s future; to provide our vision on investments to be made within the sector; to support knowledge development and innovation by enhancing cooperation and knowledge exchange; and to set the agenda for research and innovation in the animal domain.

How can more be produced with less?
