Keep Your Cattle Cool – Issues Related to Not Having the Correct Shelter this Summer

Australia is a country that can experience one climatic change to another, and it makes it difficult for farmers to provide the most suitable environment for their cattle to live in. Due to severe weather conditions, productivity among the cattle tends to decline as they are more focused on finding shelter to survive. Reproductive problems among the cattle tend to rise due to lower semen quality which causes birth rates among the female cattle to decline. Newly born cattle are vulnerable to the hot weather without having shelter as they become dehydrated and this increases the deaths among the herd.

Shelters provide safety for cattle by protecting them from the heat, it is necessary to provide protection for any extreme weather conditions. Another issue is that stress caused by hot weather tends to impact the milk harvest, milk fat and protein percentages. This can lead to conception and birth rates to diminish.
