Climate Change and Animal Production
March 19, 2013 at 1:00 p.m. (CDT)
Scientific evidence strongly suggests that climate change is occurring and has the potential to affect global food security. Production animal agriculture is both affected by climate change and variability, and a contributor to climate change through the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG). The first part of the webinar will discuss the current effects, adaptation strategies, and future needs for adapting animal production systems to climatic change and variability. The second part of the webinar will discuss the GHG emission sources and GHG emission mitigation strategies for animal production systems, followed by a question and answer session.
