Title in English: Opinion paper: Measuring livestock robustness and resilience: are we on the right track?
Abstract / summary in English:
Animal production is a cornerstone of employment and social structures in rural areas and, in some cases, it is highly dependent on the environment, which in a context of climate change makes it very vulnerable. For animal production systems to remain sustainable, this challenge must be managed to achieve economic stability and good welfare.
