[b][CUNDERIN, 22/12/2017][/b] - Farmers in Australia operate under some of the biggest environmental risks in the world. In February 2017, there were a series of heatwaves and El Niño and La Niña only exacerbates the possible damage to livestock. This is a serious issue for the Australian agricultural sector which has contributed $50 billion to the Australian economy every year in recent years.
[b]Effects of Heat Stress on Livestock[/b]
An often overlooked aspect of difficult or extreme weather conditions that Australian farmers face is the affect heat has on dairy production. International research has found that the higher the temperature the less food intake livestock consume. This is called heat stress and affects the ability of livestock to produce milk. At high temperatures, dairy production can be reduced by as much as 10-25 percent. In extreme temperatures the decreased dairy production is drastic and can plummet by as much as 40 percent.
