How do heat waves effect our livestock?



  1. 0 Votes

    Heat waves can surely negatively affect livestock. Extreme, long periods of heat can dry up crops and grass. Cattle typically need grass for their diets, so the quality and quantity of it certainly has an effect on them. The growth rate of calves, for instance, can be reduced because of heat waves. Poor forage affects the mother’s milk, resulting in a size reduction in nursing calves. Without proper growth expectancies, farmers can’t sell their calves for the normal price.
