    The beef production goal is to have healthy animals that can achieve the maximum genetic potential with less cost. The animal health is not just related to diseases caused by a pathogen agent or metabolic/physical problems but caused also by stress factors. The external stress is defined as “the result of exposure to a situation or environment that is not normal for an animal”. In beef cattle production, the handling and transport can be the most stressor sources for the animals.

  • Lower production and other consequences of heat stress can begin at a temperature of just 22°C. Here are tips to cope with the challenge. Modern dairy breeds like the Holstein Friesian breed are developed in northern countries, meaning they are tolerant towards cold weather conditions but susceptible to heat. In many areas around the world, summers are hot and long.

  • The severity of heat stress issues on dairy cows will increase as global warming progresses. Fortunately, major advances in environmental management, including fans, misters, sprinklers, and cooled waterbeds, can attenuate the effects of thermal stress on cow health, production, and reproduction. These cooling systems were, however, tested in subtropical areas and their efficiency in northern regions is uncertain. This article assesses the potential of existing technologies to cool cows in humid continental climates through calculation of heat stress indices.
