NFU tackles misinformation on climate change with its livestock “myth buster” fact sheet

25 February 2020

The NFU will publish a livestock fact sheet on livestock and the environment to help farmers counteract misinformation and public misunderstanding of the sector.

The sheet will be distributed at the NFU20 Conference today in Birmingham, and digital editions will be available on the NFU’s website.

NFU livestock board chairman Richard Findlay said: “Our Rethinking Ruminants document is specifically designed to help farmers promote the benefits of British livestock farming and counter some of the common misconceptions around our industry.

As farmers, we are the most valuable and effective advocates for what we do, so this is about giving the farming community the means to showcase it to the public.”

NFU President Minette Batters has previously encouraged farmers to engage with the public about the benefits of livestock farming.
