All species have ideal climatic parameters for survival in animal husbandry, and changes to these variables have a negative impact on the quality and quantity of farm animals and animal products. There are four key areas where the effects of climate change on animal productivity can be studied. These include effects on pasture quality, effects on animal diseases and pests, effects on animal health, growth, and reproduction. They also include implications on the availability, quality, and price of feed crops. Planning for the sector's future is crucial in order to meet the population's food needs, lessen the impact of climate change on livestock output, and reduce the sector's contribution to global warming. Adapting animal husbandry to climate change is required to reduce all these harmful effects.
