Identifying Hotspots of Future Animal Climate Control Needs in North Carolina
Dr. Natalie Nelson (North Carolina State University)
Swine and broiler production are two of the most prominent animal production sectors, and are increasing rapidly overtime with popularity. As global warming is progressing, there is a concern regarding the effects of temperature and humidity on animal production quality. This project utilizes data science tools to determine areas in which climate control for animal facilities will be an issue under future climate scenarios.The objective includes identifying the top two swine and broiler production counties as of 2017 in North Carolina, and evaluate how production in these counties may suffer from the effects of heat stress under future climate conditions.
