Livestock weather safety index

Livestock Weather Safety Index (LWSI) was developed to classify the combined intensity of temperature and humidity into four categories of THI values : THI less  The Livestock Weather Safety Index (LCI, 1970) is commonly used as a benchmark to assign heat stress levels to normal, alert, danger and emergency.

How is Livestock Weather Safety Index abbreviated? LWSI stands for Livestock Weather Safety Index. LWSI is defined as Livestock Weather Safety Index rarely. Similarly, The Livestock Weather Safety Index quantified environmental conditions using the THI as formulated by Thom and it described the HSZ into four categories with different range of THI under each category like normal (≤74), alert (74< THI <79), danger stress (79≤ THI <84) and emergency stress The Livestock Weather Safety Index (LWSI) indicates that in large areas of South Africa and South West Africa/Namibia and for prolonged periods of the year warm conditions are causing heat stress in food-producing animals, especially dairy cattle, thereby hampering their performance. Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP) LIP provides benefits to livestock producers for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather or by attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the Federal Government. LIP payments are equal to 75 percent of the average fair market value of the livestock.
