Livestock farming mythbuster

British farmers produce some of the best quality, freshest and tastiest meat in the world and are proud of how they care for their animals and the environment. To support British livestock farmers, look out for the Red Tractor logo on supermarket packaging, or visit your local farm shop or farmers' market and buy it fresh from the farm. And if you want to find out more about livestock farming, we have some of your questions answered straight from the farm gate. Click here for our farmers' Q&A livestock mythbusting special.
