DRY COW COOLING, IT’S NOT ALL A VACATION
Broaden the focus beyond lactating dairy cattle in times of extreme heat. Keeping dry cows cool and comfortable in the summer is beneficial to her, the calf and your bottom line. Tune in to Dr. Geoffrey Dahl of the University of Florida as he discusses the effects of heat stress during the dry period. Learn what the aftermath can do to mammary growth, metabolism and immune function and how these effects lead to a more challenging transition and result in a lower yield in the next lactation. Dahl will also discuss the impact of in utero heat stress on the calf, both early in life and when they begin lactating. Finally, Dahl will cover the economic impacts of dry cow cooling and why it makes sense financially in almost all situations.
