Livestock and their productions are indicated among the ac-tivities with the highest impact on the environment. This short review reports a brief description of the latest research on the sustainability of livestock farming assessed both as climate -altering emissions, including the adequacy of methane metrics, the carbon stock balances, and water consumption.

Abstract

Livestock and their productions are indicated among the ac-tivities with the highest impact on the environment. This short review reports a brief description of the latest research on the sustainability of livestock farming assessed both as climate -altering emissions, including the adequacy of methane metrics, the carbon stock balances, and water consumption. This review also describes the reductions in impacts by using ag-roecology to develop nutrient recycling, carbon-neutral live-stock systems, and sustainable food with the adoption of sustainable diets and attention to food waste. This knowledge can be useful in better evaluating these issues from both sci-entific and policy perspectives.
