Attend and rewatch our webinar on “Heat stress” which was hosted on March 24 15:00 CET below.
Just like humans, livestock have certain conditions in which they thrive. When temperatures get too high (or too low), they are likely to perform suboptimally. Growth will be slowed down, feed intake will drop, animal welfare and ultimately health are compromised. In the context of global warming, it is likely that the topic of “heat stress” therefore will gain in importance in the years to come. In a special webinar, broadcasted on Wednesday, March 24 at 3pm Central European Time, we touched on heat stress for poultry, pigs and dairy cows. Various methods were discussed how to be better prepared for hot circumstances.
