-The first animals to be domesticated for food use are thought to be sheep, between 11,000 and 9,000 B.C. in Southwest Asia. Goats followed later around 8,000 BC. Both animals were used for their meat, milk, and coats, and became an integral part of nomadic communities

Labour MP says most livestock farming will be phased out over next 20 years

Labour MP and vice chairman of the party’s ‘Just Transition Working Group’, Alan Whitehead, has claimed most livestock farmers will not be rearing animals in 20 years’ time.

Labour MP says most livestock farming will be phased out over next 20 years


Mr Whitehead said his comments were not ‘party policy’ or ‘definitely decided’, but suggested change in the agriculture and land use sector had to happen ‘pretty quickly’ to bring down emissions.

 

He went on to compare livestock farmers to workers in coalfire power stations, and claimed neither had any right to continue working in those sectors for life.

 

Speaking at an event hosted by SERA, Labour’s environmental group, Mr Whitehead said: “The people who say ‘I am a livestock farmer and I want to farm livestock forever’, it is a bit like workers in coalfire stations saying ‘I have always been a coalfire power station worker, I want to be in a coalfire power station forever, therefore you have got to organise things so we always have coalfire power stations’.

“You cannot do that. It is not possible to do that and nor should we ever think of doing that because of net zero imperatives. It is the same thing in terms of livestock farming I am afraid.

 

“But you cannot make those changes by leaving the people who were in the previous economy behind, and you certainly do not make those changes without using all the skills and knowledge and understanding and objectivity of those people who were in the previous economy to transition to the new economy.”

 

Matthew Pennycook, Shadow Climate Change Minister and the chairman of the Just Transition Working Group, echoed these remarks, saying it would not be possible to have a smooth transition to a net zero economy without winning people’s support for the process.

 

“By our history, we are very conscious of the need to avoid the kind of industrial change we saw in the 1980s, which was really badly mismanaged,” he said.
