Abstract: The effects of climate change are controversial. This paper reviews the effects of climate change on livestock following the theory of global warming. Hot environment impairs production (growth, meat and milk yield and quality, egg yield, weight, and quality) and reproductive performance, metabolic and health status, and immune response. To guide the evolution of livestock production systems under the increase of temperature and extreme events, better information is needed regarding biophysical
