  journal={Journal of environment and earth science},
The dairy-climate change dilemma in Kenya cannot be mistaken. However, extensive research into dairy farming and an understanding of the dynamics of climate variability effects is greatly lacking.The study investigated the effects of climate variability on dairy cattle breeds in Masaba North, Kenya. The objective for the study were to determine the trend of climate variability and its effects on dairy farming. During the study two sampling techniques were used; purposive and systematic sampling…

Climate variability and conflict risk in East Africa, 1990–2009

The relationship between temperature and conflict shows that much warmer than normal temperatures raise the risk of violence, whereas average and cooler temperatures have no effect.

Climate Change, Heat Stress, and U.S. Dairy Production

In the United States, climate change is likely to increase average daily temperatures and the frequency of heat waves, which can reduce meat and milk production in animals. Methods that livestock


The indirect effects of climate driven changes in animal performance result mainly from alterations in the nutritional environment. Research suggests that changes in climate would affect the quality
