Heat Stress in Livestock and Poultry
Australian farmers are heat stress specialists
Australia is one of the hottest and driest countries on earth.With about 65% of its land mass desert, and another 20% tropical. It has emerged as one of the most efficient livestock producers in the world. Australian farmers battle daily with extremes of temperature.
It's not surprising that an Australian company moulded by the rigours of the harsh Australian environment, should develop a range of animal health products capable of improving production
under adverse rearing conditions.
Even farmers in cool or cold climates often adjust their shed orbarn temperatures for their own comfort, not realizing the microclimate of the birds or livestock they are growing is altered. They are inadvertently creating a heat stress situation.
