Dear Reader,

Soaring temperatures, combined with soaked soils from heavy rains, can put cattle at high risk of heat stress. Several factors, both genetic and environmental, can affect the susceptibility of cattle to heat stress. European breeds and black-hided or red-hided cattle have genetic susceptibility.

Cattle that are in poor condition, have previously suffered from pneumonia have higher risk of stress, as are those that are poorly conditioned or have recently arrived at a high-risk region. Do you know what these factors are and how you can help prevent heat stress in livestock?
