Livestock Fact Check

The Livestock Fact Check project digs into the evidence behind popular facts about livestock, to discover whether those facts are accurate and up to date.

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.
