Sustainable Goat Production in the Changing Climate aims to make the global scientific and academic communities aware of the potential of goats as a livestock of the future. When compared to more popular meat sources like cattle and swine, goats have a lower carbon footprint and can aid in mitigating the effects of climate change and even improve food production, poverty, and equity issues. The book provides insights into the implication of climate change on goat production systems in addition to emphasizing the physiological potential of goats to adapt towards erratically changing climatic conditions.

Finally, some of the advanced technological interventions used to assess the impact of heat stress in goats is covered. Written and edited by an international team of experts on goats, livestock, animal agriculture, and climate-smart food systems, this book will appeal to a broad audience, from researchers and livestock specialists to veterinarians and policymakers in food and sustainability.
