Livestock and Grassland Pilot 


Main Contact for Initiative

Livestock modeling leader: Phil Thornton
Grassland & rangeland modeling leaders: J.-F. Soussana & G. Bellocchi




The aim of the livestock and grassland is to intercompare and further develop a range of models to be applied internationally, especially for climate change impact projections. The initial activities of the Livestock & Grasslands group were discussed during past AgMIP meetings (San Antonio, 2011 and Rome, 2012).
