Our latest in-depth report on the topic of grazing livestock and climate change is out now. Written by an international group of experts led by FCRN’s Tara Garnett, this report adds clarity to the debate around livestock farming and meat and dairy consumption.
Grazed and Confused? dissects claims made by different stakeholders in the debate about so called ‘grass-fed’ beef, the greenhouse gases the animals emit, and the possibility that, through their grazing actions, they can help remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. It evaluates these claims and counterclaims against the best available science, providing an authoritative and evidence-based answer to the question: Is grass-fed beef good or bad for the climate?
