Heat stress costs the US beef industry $369 million annually (est.). Heat stress occurs when the Temperature-Humidity Index (THI) reaches levels high enough to overwhelm animals’ adaptive mechanisms.
Under heat stress, cattle experience elevated body temperature, increased respiration rate, disrupted feed intake, acidosis, and reproductive issues.
