G73-57 Hot Weather Livestock Stress, Allen C. Wellman Jan 1973

G73-57 Hot Weather Livestock Stress, Allen C. Wellman

Historical Materials from University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension

During periods of high temperatures and humidity, livestock losses can occur from "Hot Weather Stress." How weather stress is particularly hazardous to closely confined livestock (those in feedlots, sorting and holding pens, trucks and rail cars). High relative humidity when the temperature is at 80 degrees or higher adds to the likelihood of profit-stealing losses if necessary precautions are not taken.

Nebraska livestock producers can make their livestock handling and marketing plans flexible enough or take necessary precautions to reduce or eliminate livestock hot weather stress by following this Livestock Weather Hazard Guide.
