In today's episode of the Sustainable Dish Podcast, I'm joined by Dr. Adegbola Adesogan, a Professor of Ruminant Nutrition at the University of Florida, to talk about his research and the many roles that livestock play in a nutritious, ethical, and sustainable food system.
Dr. Adesogan's work in developing communities focuses on improving livestock production and educating the public of the importance of animal products in a nutritious diet.
His work shows that improving the nutrition of one person helps mend the fabric of society and that is greatly influenced by the inclusion and productivity of livestock.
When we improve livestock, folks can afford more meat, milk, and eggs in their diet.
With more meat, milk, and eggs in their diet, they improve the nutrition of their children.
When the diets of children are improved, the children's growth, development, and disease-resistance improves.
When these children are healthy, they perform better in school, which can have huge implications on their future, their families, and extended families.
It's quite amazing and we dive into it all.

In this episode, we discuss Marshall's calling to birds and the prairies, the great influence of our indigenous populations on our past, present, and future grasslands, how birds are a strong indicator of the health of an ecosystem, and how we, as conservationists, along with well-managed cattle can call on our nation's history to restore our soils.
