    The climate change is reality now. Almost major part of the societies are agreed that climate change is happening and the agriculture system will suffer further. The floods, erratic or no rainfall, desertification etc. have adversely affected (and continue even with the faster pace) to alter agriculture production potential of arable farming and livestock productions system.
    The neutral zones of thermoregulation in animals are very challenging and heat intolerance, especially in exotic high producing animals is a catastrophic. The food security is a real challenge and many parts of the world (in one or other farm) is facing hunger and malnutrition.

A shift of Thought is the Need of Time

The world needs to reconsider its policies regarding the food production systems. We have to look at the broader view of the whole system. The sustainability, human health, earth/soil health, and costs (apparent and hidden) must be considered properly and wisely.
