Actuaries Climate Index

The Actuaries Climate Index is an educational tool to inform public policymakers and actuaries about climate trends in the US and Canada, and will be updated quarterly to remain a monitoring tool. It uses six climate index components: Frequency of temperatures above the 90th percentile; Frequency of temperatures below the 10th percentile; Maximum 5-day rainfall in the month; Consecutive dry days; Winds above the 90th percentile; and Sea level. GOMA states are split into two regions: Southeast Atlantic (SEA) and Southern Plains.

Integrated Farm System Model

With tighter profit margins and increasing environmental constraints, strategic planning of farm production systems is becoming both more important and more difficult. This is especially true for dairy and beef production. Livestock production is complex with a number of interacting processes that include crop and pasture production, crop harvest, feed storage, grazing, feeding, and manure handling. Computer simulation provides a useful procedure for integrating these processes to predict the long-term performance, environmental impact, and economics of production systems.
