    Goals / Remit

    The Animal Task Force promotes a sustainable and competitive livestock sector in Europe. We are a knowledge-based organisation working on the forefront of livestock related issues. Our members are representatives from knowledge providers, industry organisations & farmers' organisations and have expertise of every aspect within the livestock value chain; from feeding & breeding to production & processing. We aim to create an integrated approach that is needed to contribute to the environmental & societal challenges our mission involves.

    Our goals are:
    - to stress the importance of sustainable livestock production for Europe’s future, promote a positive image of the entire sector;
    - to act as the leading body of expertise on livestock production, be recognised as such by European institutions, policymakers & industry;
    - to set a joint European research agenda for the livestock sector;
    - to provide informed commentary and start a dialogie with EU Directorates on priorities for R&D
