The protein transition, defined as the rebalancing between animal and alternative proteins in diets, is presented as a solution to mitigate the harmful effects of cattle production on the environment. We discuss the implications of such a transition on current livestock farms.

Lock-ins to transition pathways anchored in contextualized cooperative dynamics : insights from the historical trajectories of the Walloon dairy cooperatives
A historical study on lock-ins to diversification pathways of dairy cooperatives. By considering cooperatives as social-ecological systems, we uncovered contextualized blocking mechanisms against inter-cooperative agreements
Coexistence of Cooperative models as Structural answer to Lock-Ins in Diversification Pathways : The Case of the Walloon Dairy Sector
Drawing on the presence of various dairy cooperative models active in long value chains in the Walloon Region, the paper considers how their complementarity supports trajectories of diversification of dairy productions and invites to consider cooperative models in terms of coexistence
Agroecology is often brought up as an alternative development pathway for livestock systems. Yet, what does it mean in practice? In this article we find out by asking beef farmers themselves how they put agroecological principles into practice.
This article identifies the variety of crop diversification strategies implemented by European farmers and explores the extent to which barriers to crop diversification can be related to the proximity of innovation settings with dominant food systems.
