HAVE YOUR SAY: Do you THINK IT OK THAT AT LEAST 25% of VOYAGES HAVE HEAT STRESSED Bos Taurus?
The Government have just released the findings of a review into heat and cold stress of Bos taurus cattle. Fifty-three voyages (24.8%) documented either elevated respiratory rate/character of 2 or 3 or elevated heat stress score of 2 or 3 and heat-associated behaviours were documented in 49 (22.9%) voyages.
And that despite the fact that the authors noted: a) single daily temperature recording not representative and department was unable to assess daily temperature ranges and b) the analysis was hindered by the quality, quantity, reliability and inconsistencies of available data in these reports.
Government gets months and years to analyse. Public and stakeholders got one month (ending Nov 29th) to comment at :https://haveyoursay.awe.gov.au/heat-and-cold-stress-in-bos-taurus-cattle/widgets/354859/documents
