Heat Stress in Beef Cattle
  • Grant A. Dewell, Iowa State University

Heat stress is a recurring issue for most areas where cattle feeding occurs. Proper planning can provide effective mitigation strategies and minimize death loss during heat events. To reduce the risk to feedlot cattle, feedlot operators should have a plan for performance loss due to decreased efficiency and feed intake, in addition to a plan to prevent death due to heat.
