To feed a growing world, some say farmers will have to produce 70% more food over the next 30 years. Doing so in a sustainable fashion is a top priority for the guests on the latest episode of The Dairy Download.

Joining us first is Dr. Sara Place, Chief Sustainability Officer for Elanco. She helps define buzzwords like “net-zero” and discusses what they mean for producers and consumers. She also gives a look into Elanco’s global sustainability efforts.

Next up is Scott Faber, a spokesman and activist with the Environmental Working Group. He offers a look into the group’s priorities for U.S. food and farm policy, including a strong focus on environmental and hunger issues. He also discusses how those policies can be implemented on the farm level.
