Proper CRYSTALYX® The dog days of summer: Regulating cattle body temperature during heat (or cold) stress

May 8, 2018

I recently visited Texas to attend a distributor meeting. Prior to the meeting, I traveled to the southern part of the state to visit with a group of ranchers and distributors. Coming from Minnesota and landing in San Antonio felt akin to walking into an oven as I deplaned. During my time there, high temperatures were above 100 degrees Fahrenheit each day. As we visited a ranch and drove by hundreds of cattle, I thought about how these animals handle such high temperatures — while ranchers from the area were more curious about how cattle survive the cold northern winters.
