Abstract

LCA research is being used to examine material and energy use , greenhouse gas es, and other emissions associated with various livestock and crop production systems across the globe. To ensure sustainability in crop and livestock production systems, we must understand how current systems contribute to emissions, deplete resources, and affect waste streams. The authors chose to use LCA to examine various swine production systems in the Upper Midwest given its prevalent use worldwide as an eco-efficiency tool .
