 The role of weather and climate in animal husbandry and livestock production is significant. Climate influences the adaptability of animals in a specific region, while weather impacts their health and daily performance. This book comprises a total of twenty-seven chapters, encompassing fundamental aspects of atmospheric phenomena and their applications in animal agriculture. In summary, the textbook covers essential concepts of livestock meteorology, the effects of various weather elements and indices on animal physiology, the significance of microclimate modification, livestock advisories based on weather forecasts, the effects of weather and climate on diseases, including the impact of UV radiation, meteorological instruments, units, and calculations, statistical methods in livestock meteorology, and the climatology of India. This publication is unique and serves as a valuable resource for students, faculty members, researchers, scientists, and students of animal husbandry, livestock meteorology, climate science, and climate change. It will prove to be a useful reference material for anyone interested in understanding the impact of weather and climate on animal husbandry and livestock management. The editors hope that the textbook will be widely read and discussed among the scientific community in the field of climate change and animal agriculture.
