Abstract:

Livestock production system is a contributor to the climate change. Responding to the challenge of climate change requires formulation of appropriate long term adaptation strategies and mitigation options for the livestock sector. Factors affecting variability in enteric CH4 production requires urgent attention and efforts to decrease the uncertainty in GHG emission inventories. It is very essential to identify viable GHG reduction strategies. Clarity is required concerning the benefits of livestock, the negative impacts they can have on greenhouse-gas emissions and the environment, and the effects of climate change on livestock system. Although the reduction in GHG emissions from livestock industries are seen as high priorities, strategies for reducing emissions should not reduce the economic viability of enterprises.
