Consequently, in a bid to tackle the problem, ongoing research attempts to identify where these emissions are coming from, writes Adam Anson, reporting for TheCattleSite.
The Effects of Heat Stress on Metabolism and Nutrition Decisions
Heat stress negatively impacts a variety of dairy parameters including milk yield and reproduction and; therefore is a significant financial burden in many dairy-producing areas of the world, writes L.H. Baumgard and R.P. Rhoads. This feature was taken from the proceedings of the High Plains Dairy Conference. A full link to the proceedings is provided below.
Colostrum for the Dairy Calf
