Effect of heat stress during early, late, and entire dry period on dairy cattle
Published on 17/04/2019
Cooling during the entire dry period abates the negative effects of heat stress postpartum, yet the temporal relationship of cooling to performance is unknown. This study from the University of Florida, Gainesville, found that cooling for the entire dry period increased milk yield up to 30 weeks into lactation. It showed that heat stress at any time during the dry period compromises performance of cows after calving.
