Whitepaper: How to assess heat stress risks in dairy and beef cattle?
Jun 15, 2018
It’s a fact: heat stress impacts dairy and beef cattle feeding behavior, physiology, performance, and welfare. A recent Lallemand survey shows rumen indicators and rumen efficiency are also impacted.
For example, in cows, rumination activity is suboptimal in 86% of farms under heat stress, as compared to 69 % of farms not experiencing heat stress.
Read the latest white paper by Lallemand Animal Nutrition to learn more about the relevant criteria to assess heat stress in dairy and beef cattle as well as practical tips for alleviating its impact, including the benefits of using a ruminant-specific live yeast.
