LEO aims to bring together all information relating to the livestock sector in a single digital database, to support and improve the quality of Italian livestock production while respecting animal welfare and the environment. This is the first initiative of this type in Europe that aims to provide accessible information to breeders, scholars, researchers, operators in the sector, professionals and anyone who wants to use them to encourage exchange and sharing, the transparency of the entire livestock supply chain and food safety.
