The Livestock Data for Decision (LD4D) community of practice held its first dedicated meeting in June 2017 in Edinburgh.
This meeting was designed around the needs of the community and focused on ensuring that LD4D outputs brought benefits to each member. A lively 2.5 day meeting resulted in a clear list of tasks for LD4D and a refocusing of the community away from the creation of a LD4D database toward a data portal and knowledge platform. The next LD4D meeting is planned for Feb 2018.
