Help livestock survive the extreme heat – Voice Of Muscatine

Help livestock survive the extreme heat

An extension specialist says producers should be careful working with livestock during the August heatwave.

Daniel Mallory with University of Missouri Extension tells Brownfield several producers in dry areas are still hauling water to cattle and working earlier in the day can alleviate stress.

“Getting up earlier and working a lot sooner in the day, avoiding the heat will benefit everyone.”

Mallory says producers should also make sure livestock have plenty of shade and airflow.
