Nutrition Programs for the Heat Stressed Herd

Proper dietary programs are essential to cow health and performance during heat stress. Understanding what dietary changes can be made prior to and during summer heat stress are important for assisting thermoregulatory mechanisms of our modern high producing lactating dairy cows to aid in reducing the negative effects of heat stress. Nutritional changes will be presented for producers and consultants to make informed decisions on the proper dietary changes necessary to reduce the severity of summer heat stress
