Call for Submissions

Every day humans encounter food choices related to dairy products and livestock. But do we ever think about the landscapes that bring these products to our table? This session will broadly focus on the geographies of diary and livestock with papers ranging from issues of distribution and marketing to the environmental concerns related to Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). The session will cover issues from a broad subset of livestock operations including, but not limited to, cattle, hogs, and poultry. Papers from all sub-disciplines of geography are welcomed. We will try to accept as many papers as possible and are willing to create multiple sessions.

To take part in these paper sessions, participants should first register for the AAG conference, submit their abstract at www.aag.org, and take note of their PIN number. Presenters then should send an e-mail to Dawn M. Drake (ddrake4@missouriwestern.edu). These emails should contain the presenter’s PIN number, paper title, and abstract, to add in organization of sessions. The deadline to register for this session is 11:59pm CT, Tuesday November 6.

This session is being sponsored by the Rural Geography Specialty Group (RGSG). RGSG promotes research and education related to contemporary rural landscapes, societies, and economies in the developed and developing world. Specialty group members conduct research across an array of topics, including agriculture; land use; environmental governance; population; rural health, crime, and poverty; food systems; indigenous peoples; and rural restructuring processes.
