Integrated models of livestock systems for climate change studies. 2. Intensive systems



Integrated models of livestock systems for climate change studies. 2. Intensive systems



Global Change Biology 7(2): 163-170



The potential impact of climate change by the year 2050 on intensive livestock systems in Britain is assessed through the use of simulation models of farming systems. The submodels comprise livestock feeding, livestock thermal balance and the thermal balance of controlled environment buildings and a stochastic weather generator. These are integrated to form system models for growing pigs and broiler chickens.
