Help Cattle Beat the Heat

heat stress in cattle

With summer's hottest temperatures upon us, producers need to be proactive in dealing with heat stress in cattle, including:

- Developing an action plan to deal with heat stress.
- Knowing when to intervene. A combination of factors, including temperature and humidity, drives heat stress.
