Sheep production adapting to climate change( )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and German and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a compilation of the latest findings from reputed researchers around the globe, covering in detail climate change and its effects on sheep production. In the current global climate change scenario, information related to its impact on livestock agriculture is lacking. The negative impacts of climate change are already being felt by all livestock species. Further, the mitigation and amelioration strategies that are applicable for one species may not hold true for another. As such, concerted research efforts are needed to identify species-specific strategies for mitigation and adaptation. With that goal in mind, this book is the first of its kind to gather comprehensive information pertaining to the impact of climate change on various aspects of sheep production. It also sheds light on the role of sheep with regard to the global greenhouse gas pool. The book highlights the status quo of sheep production from climate change perspectives and projects the significance of adapting future sheep production to the challenges posed by climate change. It addresses in detail the various adaptations, methane mitigation and amelioration strategies needed to sustain sheep production in the future. In addition, the book presents development plans and policies that will allow the sheep industry to cope with current climate changes and strategies that will lessen future impacts. Bringing together essential information prepared by world-class researchers hailing from different agro-ecological zones, this book offers a unique resource for all researchers, teachers and students associated with sustaining the sheep production in the face of global change."--Publisher's description
Livestock production and climate change by P. K Malik( )

This 395-paged-book aims to raise awareness among scientists, academics, students, livestock farmers and policy makers of the twin inter-related and inter-dependent complex mechanisms of livestock rearing and climate change. The contents are divided into sections: one on livestock production, one on climate change and one on enteric methane amelioration. In the first section, decisive issues such as current feed and fodder demand, the effect of climate change on feed availability and quality, projections for 2030, water requirement, etc., have been dealt in order. Given the due importance to abiotic stress, nitrogen emissions and phosphorus pollution, well-designed individual chapters are arranged in this section that suggest the appropriate corrective measures for these global glitches. As ruminants thrive mainly on fibrous feed material, particularly in the developing world, the special topics on metagenomics and proteomics are positioned in this section for the effective use of these emerging approaches in fibre degradation. As stated earlier, livestock production and climate change are amalgamated through complex mechanisms, and one affects the other in many ways. Therefore, in the section on climate change, an attempt is made to address the interspersed link under seven chapters, focusing on the carbon footprint of producing food of animal origin, carbon sequestration, livestock diversity, animal reproduction, meat production and the role of indigenous livestock in the changing climatic scenario. Exclusive attention is given to enteric methane emission in the final section for being the critical factor in climate change, and is deliberated under nine different chapters converging on status, thermodynamics, feeding and biological interventions to address the problem and to achieve practically viable reduction levels for minimizing the impact of global warming and saving biological energy that can be directed towards productive functions. It is hoped that the comprehensive, compact and up-to-date information contained in this book will empower animal scientists to cope with the climate change issue

Comparative assessment of heat stress induced changes in carcass traits, plasma leptin profile and skeletal muscle myostatin and HSP70 gene expression patterns between indigenous Osmanabadi and Salem Black goat breeds( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: The primary objective of the study was to compare the impact of heat stress on meat production characteristics of Osmanabadi and Salem Black breed goats based on changes in carcass characteristics, meat quality attributes, plasma leptin concentration, skeletal muscle myostatin and heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) gene expression patterns. The goats were randomly distributed into four groups: OSC (n=6; Osmanabadi Control), OSHS (n=6; Osmanabadi Heat Stress), SBC (n=6; Salem Black Control) and SBHS (n=6; Salem Black Heat Stress). The animals were slaughtered at the end of the study and their meat characteristics were assessed. This study established the impact of heat stress on a wide variety of carcass and meat quality characteristics in OS and SB goat breeds. The results from the study also provided some crucial evidence for a better resilience capacity of Salem Black breed as compared to Osmanabadi goats in maintaining the meat production during heat stress. The study also established plasma leptin and HSP70 genes to be the ideal biomarkers to reflect the impact of heat stress on meat characteristics in indigenous goats
