Summertime heat and humidity have a large impact on cow comfort and milk production. Research has shown that temperatures above 71° and relative humidity higher than 60% will cause a noticeable rise in the body temperature of cows. This heat stress in cows will show up in reduced feed intake, followed by a drop in milk production. Some research reports suggest that that drops in milk yield of 20-30% following heat stress are not uncommon in high-producing herds. In addition to these adverse affects, heat stress negatively impacts the reproductive health of cows. These reproductive repercussions can last even till late fall.
