GENERAL
In general, monocultures present serious risks for the industry and consumers. There is already considerable industry pressure for animal uniformity, which has lead to a worrying reduction in genetic diversity, with all the risks that entails. Regulation needs to discourage risky monocultures and promote genetic diversity.
