Protecting Cattle from the Cold

Cattle in Winter 4

Cold temperatures bring on challenges for cow-calf producers. Producers need to provide balanced rations, modify the environment to provide protection and give the cattle plenty of water. Cattle that suffer hypothermia or frostbite are more prone to other disease conditions and certainly do not perform as well as cattle that are warm, dry and out of the wind.
