I arrived thirty minutes late for my first class at Wageningen University. The traffic was congested all the way from Amsterdam to Wageningen. My driver said: “Perhaps I will sit in on your class, or I will go to visit my grandmother who lives nearby in Barneveld.”

One of the topics that came up during my first class was the question if there is a fundamental difference between animal husbandry and human mating strategies.
It’s all about improvement, or the illusion of improvement. Improvement of livestock; improvement of human beings.
