Aesthetics, genetics, and evaluating animal bodies: locating and displacing cattle on show and in figures (2005)
Journal Article
Holloway, L. (2005). Aesthetics, genetics, and evaluating animal bodies: locating and displacing cattle on show and in figures. Environment and planning. D, Society & space, 23(6), (883-902). doi:10.1068/d59j. ISSN 0263-7758

In this paper I examine intertwined modes of bodily evaluation and genetic understanding evident in relation to 'modernising' tendencies in contemporary agriculture, using a case study of pedigree cattle breeding. These modes afford different perspec... Read More about Aesthetics, genetics, and evaluating animal bodies: locating and displacing cattle on show and in figures.

Biopower and an ecology of genes : seeing livestock as meat via genetics
Book Chapter
