This group, which brings together modellers who work within the livestock sector under the LD4D banner, aims to facilitate collaboration to answer some of the big questions relating to livestock.
Many of these which have been identified as needing an answer through the Livestock Fact Check project.
This group could offer a useful contribution to the CGIAR Big Data in Agriculture Platform.
This group includes a subgroup on "Health Intervention Impact Modelling", convened by SEBI, GALVmed and CSIRO to tackle the challenge of modelling animal health interventions (e.g. the distribution of livestock vaccines) and to understand impact and guide strategy.
Working Group news:
