The proper maintenance of cattle handling equipment is crucial to livestock management as it ensures the safe and efficient handling of animals, regardless of whether you are a small-scale farmer or a large commercial operation. Neglecting equipment maintenance can result in costly breakdowns, animal injury or death and higher maintenance expenses.
Summer can be a tough time for cattle, especially if they are not properly cared for. High temperatures and humidity can lead to heat stress, which can adversely affect the quality of the meat produced, fertility, and overall health of the animal. In some severe cases, heat stress can even lead to death. That’s why it’s important to take steps to keep your cattle cool and comfortable during the summer months to ensure their well-being.
