Abstract

A stochastic method for synthetic weather generation is combined with a model for chicken layer performance to illustrate the utility of risk analysis applied to animal housing. Daily mean temperatures are generated based on the previous day's temperature, the expected mean daily temperature, and a random fluctuation. Mean results from the stochastic approach are substantially different from those predicted using a deterministic method based on a sequence of average daily temperatures for a mean year.
