Day 3.2 livestock impact livestock gf_rome (2)

  1. 1. An Update on the IMPACT-Livestock Module D. Enahoro, S. Nelgen, S. Robinson, D. Mason-D’Croz, Global Futures and Strategic Foresight Extended Team Meeting Arbitart Hotel, Rome 25 – 28 May, 2015
  2. 2. Outline •The IMPACT model & Livestock •Baseline and suggested changes •Livestock systems characterization •Yield response •Feed supplies •Herd growth representation •Feed demand allocation •Next steps
  3. 3. Re: The IMPACT Model System Climate models Macro- economic trends Crop models Water demand trends Hydrology, water basin management and stress models IMPACT multi- country, multi- market Outputs Source: Rosegrant et al., 2014 trade prices production yields harvested area Figure 1: IMPACT System
  4. 4. Livestock in IMPACT v 2.0 Sector Representation: • 6 commodities – beef, milk, chicken meat, lamb, pork, eggs • Supply modelled at level of food production units (FPUs) • Country-level demand responsive to income, population trends, commodity prices • Internationally-traded feed grains and concentrates IMPACT projections to 2050 (Rosegrant et al., 2012 ): • Expansion in demand for meat, dairy, cereals, livestock feeds • Higher prices of major agricultural commodities
  5. 5. Important Gaps Identified • Heterogeneity in production systems not recognized • Important livestock feed dimensions ignored • Non-accounting for feed constraints on sector expansion • Herd dynamics largely missing • Addressed in Msangi et. al., 2014 (using IMPACT v2.0) • v3.0 compatibility needed
  6. 6. Revisions to Livestock representation in IMPACT Original Specification Suggested Updates Supply response is relatively homogenous within countries Livestock supply disaggregated by system types (intensive/extensive) Livestock feed basket composed only of internationally-traded feeds (mostly coarse grains and meals) Pasture grasses, crop residues and occasional feeds added to livestock feeding possibilities Yield is exogenously determined, and does not respond to quantity or quality of fed rations Meat and milk response functions are endogenous, responding to changes in feed quantities and nutritive values Total herd size includes milk-producing and slaughtered meat animals only Total herd count includes replacement and/or follower herds in dairy and meat production Animal productivity only indirectly affected but not affected by feed availability through price effects Explicit feed-availability constraints imposed on animal productivity Source: Msangi et al., 2014 Table 1: Original specification of livestock in IMPACT and key changes to model
  7. 7. Global Livestock Production Source: FAO, 2011Figure 2: Global Livestock Production Systems
  8. 8. Production Systems Disaggregation in IMPACT Following Kruska et al., 2002; FAO, 2011 1. Rangeland-Based: •Hyper-Arid/Arid/Semi-Arid •Humid/Sub-Humid •Temperate/Tropical Highlands 2. Mixed (Irrigated and Rainfed): •Hyper-Arid/Arid/Semi-Arid •Humid/Sub-Humid •Temperate/Tropical Highlands 3. Urban 4. Other
  9. 9. Production Systems Disaggregation in IMPACT System-specific data for IMPACT 3.3: 1. Livestock populations – producer herds and stocks 2. Meat, milk, egg production per unit livestock 3. Per unit feed intake 4. Biomass availability in FPU-system

  13. 13. Feed Response of Livestock Yields •Livestock production (in MTs per TLU per year) generated from work at ILRI and IIASA • Feed sources from four major categories: o Grains and residues (FAO feed commodities) o Residues o Grasses (grazing, cut-and-carry) o Occasional feeds (kitchen wastes, non- FAO) •Simulation data generated from RUMINANT livestock nutrition model •FPU-systems would not switch feeding regime in the projection years •“Sites” of production could shift with feed availability
  14. 14. Alternative Livestock Feed Supplies •Crop grain-residue conversion factors from ILRI/ICRISAT work (Blummel; Herrero et al.,) (QN is stover dry matter from crop type b, in FPU f and livestock system l ; QS is crop grain b production; c-, util-, and DM- fact are grain conversion, feed utilization, and dry matter factors, respectively) •Occasional feeds modeled in base year to bridge gap between feeds locally available, and animal nutrition dietary requirements •Pasture availability estimated from grassland area and productivity layers (Havlik et al., 2011)  flbflbflbflb utilfactcfactQSQN flbDMfact Eqn. 5.

  16. 16. Ruminant Numbers Accounting Suggested: •Distinguish meat and milk herds/producers •Further disaggregate follower animals •Account for feed demand of entire herd •Impose feed availability limitations on herd expansion, esp. in mixed and extensive systems •Include in accounting of CC effects on livestock

  19. 19. Projections of other feed demand Simpler treatment of non-marketed feeds: • Crop grain-residue: availability increases with crop production • Pastures: fixed by given grassland area and productivity (don’t have means of modeling changes to this presently, inclu. CC-related) • Occasional feeds: held constant at base year values (change according to scenarios?) , , avail r nmf r nmfQL nonMktFeed Essentially, a strict constraint on availability
