URL: http://www.fao.org/fileadmin/user_upload/gleam/docs/GLEAM_2.0_Model_description.pdf

The Global Livestock Environmental Assessment Model is a modelling framework that simulates the bio-physical processes and activities along livestock supply chains under a life cycle assessment approach. It provides a detailed description of herd dynamics, feed rations and manure management systems, and can support the assessment of feed balances and impact of climate change on livestock production. It supports calculation of the emission intensity for any combination of commodity and farming systems at different spatial scales.
