Adaptation to Climate Change: Land Use and Livestock Management Change in the U.S.

This paper examines possible expected climate adaptations in a U.S. land use and livestock context. By using a Fractional Multinomial Logit model, we find that climate variables are affecting the allocation of land use by reducing crop land and increasing pasture land. Our projections indicate that more cropping land would be altered to livestock land under climate change. In addition, cattle stocking rate could increase by the end of this century along with more pasture land or less cattle inventory because of higher temperature.
