On-Stage Highlights

Shifting the Focus to Preventative Healthcare

“Consumers are open to technology, but they want science, and they want transparency in that science. What is really cool is that consumers care, but as an industry we need to make sure we’re providing science-based proof points for our future technology.”
Katie Cook, VP Farm Animal Innovation & Marketing, ELANCO

Towards Holistic Sustainability in Animal Supply Chains

“These carbon, animal welfare and antibiotic commitments are requiring supply chains to have these relationships and visibility that go further back. We need to have relationships with the farmers and the packers because these data points are going to be required for us to demonstrate that we are actually making progress to these commitments.”
Banks BakerGlobal Director, Product SustainabilityGENUS, PIG IMPROVEMENT COMPANY (PIC)

Optimizing Existing Feed Sources and Scaling Novel Solutions

“We hear Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 all the time, but what do they mean?

  • Scope 1: Direct Emissions
  • Scope 2: Indirect Emissions
  • Scope 3: Upstream and downstream emissions

With net zero it’s an exciting and challenging time for JBS. Everyone is still figuring out what is best for feed and what should go into feed, but it goes back to having a scalability and economic component which needs to help the farmers and ranchers decrease emissions of those things.”
Sarah Klopatek, Director Sustainability R&D, JBS

Maintaining Momentum in Animal AgTech Innovation

“There is an increasing interest from sustainability and impact investors in this space. In our most recent fund on the venture side, the single largest growth in LP profile was from impact sustainability and oriented investors. We are being called upon to be more articulate and more thoughtful in respect to all the technology investments that we are making.”
Eric O’Brien, Co-Founder & Managing Director, FALL LINE CAPITAL
