For some time, we have been hearing that livestock is one of the main sources of greenhouse gas emissions on the planet. Hardly any other sector faces more global pressure to reduce emissions than livestock. Quickly, this pressure has spread with remarkable speed.

In this sense, it is necessary to raise the issue of emissions on a scientific basis and ensure fairness in the analysis of these data. So, when analyzing the livestock sector and its impact on climate change, at least six concepts can be raised that are worth analyzing to put the emissions of this sector in the correct context.
