Livestock facts, relating to economy, society and environment, are regularly used in academic and popular forum discussions, and can guide decisions. However, fact origins, calculations and context are often not recognised or appreciated.
LD4D Livestock Fact Check investigates the provenance of popular livestock facts. The objective is to ensure discussions and decisions are well informed with appropriately interpreted facts; with gaps in knowledge and assumptions recognised. The series of fact checks will promote discussion amongst livestock data stakeholders.
