BeefCast update for June 25, 2010, Once heat stress is identified, what do we do?

As the temperature continues to heat up, it is not only more difficult for you and I to perform but also our cattle. Heat stress is a very serious concern and can rob cattlemen of substantial amounts of revenue.

Whichever may affect your cattle most, it is critically important to properly diagnose and treat heat stress in your herd.
