    | Contributor(s):: Hu, Yajie, Liu, Yang, Li, Shize

    Cold environment is an inevitable stress source for humans and livestock in cold areas, which easily induce a cold stress response and then cause a series of abnormal changes in energy metabolism, neuroendocrine system, behavior and emotion.
