Livestock Fact Check
Investigating the evidence behind popular livestock facts
The objective of this effort is to help ensure that facts relevant to the livestock sector are robust, up-to- date and appropriately interpreted, resulting in better-informed discussions around these topics.
To date, nine facts have been investigated and launched in a way that stimulates discussion on these issues. All factsheets are reviewed by members of the LD4D community. A plan will also be developed to identify and review more key facts.
