Now there's a cow app for that http://kbia.org/post/heat-stress-now-theres-cow-app <p>When a cow is stressed from the heat, it affects a producer&rsquo;s bottom line. The animal eats less, meaning less mass in beef cattle. For dairy farmers, the hurt comes in the form of a 10 to 20 percent loss in milk. Researchers at the University of Missouri think we can change this trend by putting information in the hands of producers. They&rsquo;ve built a tool that can detect the threat of heat stress in specific animals before it starts.</p><p> Wed, 18 Jul 2012 22:36:44 +0000 Scott Pham 17800 at http://kbia.org Heat stress?
