Scientists have just discovered a breakthrough on how the issue can be resolved, and that's through topping some seaweeds over your livestock's regular meal.
A group of researchers surveyed 2,038 people about food, in this case, farm animals where steaks and chicken come from. The study aims to show how concerned we are on how farm animals were raised, how we understand organic and even how much we are willing to pay for it.
The dangerous superbug called Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) can now be transmitted to humans by consuming or even handling contaminated poultry, a new study reveals.
Over exploitation, according to researchers, is the culprit in the decline of most species.
Scientists recently bred the first litter of pigs with a genetic resistance to a deadly virus known as Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS).
If the European Union lifted its ban on feeding pigs food waste, roughly 1.8 million hectares of threatened Brazilian forest and savannah could be saved from excess agricultural development.
Two adult gray wolves were found dead within 50 yards of one another Wallowa County, Oregon. Authorities believe poaching was involved. Next month, Oregon's Department of Fish and Wildlife will decide whether to take the gray wolf off the state's endangered species list or not.
The US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) recently ruled that the North American gray wolf will remain classified as an endangered species despite its speedy recovery across the continent. Strangely enough, many conservationists looking to compromise with angry farmers and state officials are saying that this is not the good news they were hoping to hear.
Mark one victory point for the GMO critics. A new study recently found that genetically modified feed could be having a notable impact on goat mothers and their offspring. Critics are now using this as another point to help press the argument that there are some glaring gaps in GMO assessment and regulation that still need to be addressed.
In what can be taken as either good or bad news, Washington state's wolf population is up 30 percent and formed four new packs last year, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).
New research has discovered ancient livestock teeth that are helping to solve the mystery of African herd migrations, a route which has long been debated by researchers.
In the fight against climate change, most experts focus on controlling emissions of carbon dioxide, but methane is actually the more potent greenhouse gas, even more effective at trapping heat in Earth's atmosphere. Now, thanks to a new device, scientists are sniffing out the origins of harmful methane, helping them to better understand its role in warming the planet.
China is introducing a new wave of genetically modified (GM) cows. And we're talking 'mad-scientist' GMOs here - animals that boast genetic traits utterly impossible to create in nature. How could that ever be a good thing? Well, new research has revealed it can be beneficial in certain ways, with these latest cows promising to help the cattle industry withstand a deadly pandemic of Bovine Tuberculosis (B-TB).
While recovering wolf populations have long been driving the debate between conservationists and livestock owners, what about coyotes? The states of Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina are helping researchers conduct surveys in order to study southern coyotes and how they manage to coexist with humans.
Previous research has suggested cattle are the next invasive species, being introduced to regions where cows were not previously found. While this has yet to be confirmed, their presence is currently an issue in Mongolia, where these grass-eaters are now overgrazing and destroying vital rangelands, a new study says.
