The research team will produce models to predict the impacts of intensification, changes in climate, trade, feed prices and demand, on the health, disease and welfare of the animals: how consumption patterns and retail prices are likely to be affected; how these changes will impact farmers; and how these in turn will impact on the health and welfare of the animals.
