    A threat to meat and dairy farmers - and the national economy.

    A threat to meat and dairy farmers - and the national economy.


    A new report forecasts the world is on the cusp of the fastest disruption to agricultural production in 10 thousand years.

    It comes from independent think tank, Rethink X - based in London and San Francisco.

    It forecasts rapidly developing protein technology will, within 10 years, begin replacing animal protein.

    It believes, by 2030, lab-developed proteins will be five times cheaper than existing animal proteins, and 10 times cheaper by 2035.

    They're expected to cost less than half as much to produce as the animal-derived products.
