Agricultural Innovation in Beef


August 5, 2013

By Dr. Tyra Oldham,  LANDsds Sustainable Voice News

As we consider food production and that around the world many suffer from hunger solutions in agriculture and access to healthy food is vital. Food is sustainable ingredient in changing the world populations.   Many around the world live in food deserts without access to food and far from healthy foods. The solutions are to increase food production by science and developmental steps that lead to access and affordable foods.  The newest in scientific agricultural finding is the “World’s first lab-grown burger to be cooked and eaten” and said to have tasted good.

BBC news reports, “Scientists took cells from a cow and, at an institute in the Netherlands, turned them into strips of muscle which they combined to make a patty. Researchers say the technology could be a sustainable way of meeting what they say is a growing demand for meat. Critics say that eating less meat would be an easier way to tackle predicted food shortages.”

The urging for consumers to eat less meat is a time and conscious decision that will probably will not occur as nations such as, China are consuming more meat. The sustainable solution is to produce sound methods to manage demand while developing processes for future supply. The alternatives are genetic production which is found not to be a healthy alternative. Further, nations are land locked and more land cannot be acquired for cattle, seed, and other meat productions. As land is being acquired for more development and not food production there will need to be alternative measures to support growing world populations.

Consider, food is a renewable energy source. Often, the supply chain and impact of resources are not aggregated and considered. When we consider food as a basis of renewable energy the picture becomes clear as to the web of effect on the global sustainability.

“BBC News has been granted exclusive access to the laboratory where the meat was grown in a project costing £215,000. Prof Mark Post of Maastricht University, the scientist behind the burger, said: “Later today we are going to present the world’s first hamburger made in a lab from cells. We are doing that because livestock production is not good for the environment, it is not going to meet demand for the world and it is not good for animals”.”


As the controversy of this scientific innovation is discussed the discourse around sustainability falls into place as energy, environment, emission, food, water, land, health and climate are within the nexuses of this conversation. To deploy intellectual and applied resources to activate sustainable solutions as land, food, resources, healthy world citizens and humanity all fall into play.  The work of stem cell created beef is the beginning of the evolution of organics.
