When nutrient density is taken into account animal-sourced foods have lower GHG footprint than plant-based foods. Crucially when veggie-burgers are supplemented to match meat nutritional density, their GHGs exceed meat AND cost more!

Sad. Also terrifying that the security services are writing reports based on opinion and not hard intelligence. If they consulted with forces up and down the country they wouldn't come to such conclusions Some of the +ve feedback we've had from delegates at this week

A long yawn read. My thoughts on chairing before my account returns to normal business - weak puns, innuendo, virtue signalling, outdated cultural references and moaning about my biomass boiler A reflection on what we tried to do and what happened 1/20

My take home from this week. The next 5 years is going to be a period of rapid change in farming. We will need to stand up for our values and make our voice heard louder than ever because there is so much to be positive about.

One thing so many successful farmers have in common is that they are either first generation farmers or have been given a great deal of inherited responsibility very early in life. A clear message that we need to get more youngsters into agriculture in their early 20’s

Up next at the is Prof Alice Stanton. You may have seen her speech trailed in the Guardian. She's a cardiovascular pharmacology prof but the Guardian initially didn't report that she's also a director & large shareholder in an animal feeds firm

Always like creating word clouds of Defra minister speeches from (🤓) but not sure this year's effort from Villiers really tells us much about her thoughts or agenda. A sign she doesn't have one yet?

Good news for & : T Villiers confirms transition to Environmental Land Management begins in 2021. Also good to hear talk of controls on sub-standard imports. We mustn't export harm & undercut UK producers. But surely needs regulation not just tariffs

My Emerging Leaders experience was insightful & empowering, however, after a bit of time to digest I think I’ve realised it has just begun! It was an honour to meet so many incredible people & I look forward to building on relationships & continuing to push boundaries

One point I would like to make after attending the is that correlation does not mean causation. Plotting wheat yield against obesity is no different to plotting it against twitter users, they’re extremely complex traits and should be treated as so!
