US climate report sees reconnecting crops to livestock as smart adaption strategy

This ILRI blog post discusses a new US report from President Obama’s Global Change Research Program.

The National Climate Assessment examines the predicted impact of climate change on livestock production in the United States and considers what strategies could be used within this sector to adapt to climate change.

Raising livestock and crops together is one of four options presented in the report, argued to be important for taking advantage of the synergies between the two.  The article describes similarities between the reports findings and ILRI’s work on mixing crops and livestock.
