Field Notes, powered by KPMG, is a weekly news update on news nationally and globally from the agri-food sector.
A BBC Documentary ‘Meat, A Threat To Our Planet’ is broadcasting this week in the U.K. Farmers are defending the livestock industry, reporting that although some livestock systems and meats are part of environmental issues, there are some that are part of the solution. In the documentary, an animal biologist investigates the environmental impact of animals that are raised to supply the world’s demand for meat and looks at the efforts made to reduce these effects. People are reporting that although intensive farming may be damaging to the world and to citizens, there are forms of sustainable agriculture being used globally, and this needs to be recognised as these products can help form a balanced diet.
