Livestock Management under Changing Climate Scenario in India

  title={Livestock Management under Changing Climate Scenario in India},
  author={Prabhat Kumar Pankaj and Ramasamy Pourouchottamane and Soumen Naskar},
Animal agriculture is a major contributor to climate change through various elements like air temperature, humidity, wind velocity, solar radiation and other factors. Heat is the major constraint in tropical and sub tropical climatic conditions which negatively affects production and reproduction of livestock species. Alterations of temperature and humidity profile may alter the productivity, reproductive efficiency and may aggravate the spread of disease and parasites into new regions. The…

The current problems in the world are variation/declining of rainfall, shortage of feed and water, incidence of disease and rising of temperature, these are come about because of climate change. So,
The trajectory of livestock performance in India: A review
This paper presents the growth trajectory along with key dimensions related to livestock marketing, trade, animal health services, feeding pattern along with the impact of climate. India’s livestock
Assessment of zinc flow cycle in dairy buffalo: A case study on low input rural soil-plant-animal interaction in semi-arid zone of Telangana, India
It was concluded that few sample was deficient in Zn, but animal was able to maintain the plasma Zn level to some extent and Supplementation of Zn is required to overcome sub-clinical Zn deficiency mainly through feed fortification.
Decrypting bio-molecular variability in small ruminants and antioxidants to combat bio-meteorological stress in semi-arid tropics

Animal husbandry in Africa: Climate change impacts and adaptations
This paper uses a cross-sectional approach to analyze the impacts of climate change on animal husbandry and the way farmers adapt. The study is based on surveys of almost 5000 livestock farmers
The Impact of Climate Change on the United States Economy: Economic effects of climate change on US agriculture
Agriculture was one of the first economic sectors studied in climate change impact research because of its importance to human survival and its well known sensitivity to climate (see d'Arge, 1975;
Impact of Climate change on Milk production of Murrah buffaloes
Abstract Global warming is likely to impact productivity of buffaloes due to their sensitivity to temperature changes. Air temperature, humidity, wind velocity and solar radiation are the main
