Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence on the effects of mixed stocking on bird populations.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action
Different livestock forage differently and so stocking multiple species in one area may help create a more diverse habitat.
