According to recent studies comparing the nutritional value of meat from wild animals and meat from domesticated animals, wild animals have lesstotal fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is good for cardiac health.

A.wild animals have less total fat than do livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat they think is

B.wild animals have less total fat than livestock fed on grain and more of a kind of fat thought to be

C.wild animals have less total fat than that of livestock fed on grain and have more fat of a kind thought to be

Wild animals have less total fat than total fat of live stock is not the same as Wild animals have less total fat than livestock have/ do

I still dont understand how in the correct sentence we can remove HAVE/DOES solely based on the understanding that the intended meaning is clear.
Grammatically: "Wild animals have less total fat than livestock" - We are comparing Wild animal's fact to livestock

Likewise in other sentences, even if the logical meaning is correct - we focus on correcting the grammatical construction

D.total fat of wild animals is less than livestock fed on grain and they have more fat of a kind thought to be

E.total fat is less in wild animals than that of livestock fed on grain and more of their fat is of a kind they think is

I understand that the above sentence is incorrect because "total fat IN something is compared to the total fat OF something"

In addition to the sentences mentioned by you as correct, can the following sentence be correct?
total fat is less in wild animals than that in livestock

Also isn't Livestock a collective noun - Shouldn't it be singular?
