The speakers will discuss topics like the facts and fiction around livestock and its environmental impact, methane reduction strategies for cattle, and why methane should be treated differently compared to other greenhouse gases, the sustainability of meat and dairy and whether or not livestock is essential for food and resource security and climate change reduction.
