With UK temperatures proving unpredictable it is more important than ever that farmers regularly check the temperature of their broiler and dairy sheds to prevent loss of production due to heat stress.

What are the common effects of heat-stress on production in dairy cattle and how can ventilation be used as heat stress management?

It’s well known within the agriculture industry that cattle housed in sheds with poor ventilation are far more susceptible to infection, particularly if they are over or under-stocked.

In my time working with horse trainers and stables, I’ve seen first-hand the disruption respiratory infections such as pneumonia and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can cause during colder months, as well as the cost associated with treatment.
