June 2022

This list includes all studies we know of published in June that are:

  • Empirical (original, meta-analysis, or review of empirical studies),

  • about advocating for farmed animals (rather than, for example, the welfare of farmed animals themselves) or,

  • provide evidence from basic empirical research that may be of interest to farmed animal advocates.
