Hot Weather Livestock Stress
Metadata[+] Show full item record
During periods of high temperatures and humidity, livestock losses can occur from hot weather stress. Hot weather stress is particularly hazardous to closely confined livestock (those in feedlots, sorting and holding pens, trucks and rail cars). High relative humidity when the temperature is at 80 degrees or more adds to the likelihood of profit-stealing losses if necessary precautions are not taken.
