Environmental physiology and shelter engineering with special reference to domestic animals XXIII: The effect of humidity on insensible weight loss, total vaporized moisture, and surface temperature in cattle
Metadata[+] Show full item record
This is the third progress report in a preliminary survey of effects of relative humidity at various temperatures on physiological reactions of European- and Indian-evolved (Brahman) cattle. The first (Bul. 521) reported data on the effect of humidity on feed and water consumption, milk production and composition, and body weight; the second (Bul. 522) on heat production, rectal temperature, and cardiorespiratory activities. This report is on insensible weight loss, total moisture vaporization and hair and skin temperatures.
