Senior Research Scientist Leah Marett on the Feeding Cool Cows Project

The Feeding Cool Cows research aims to identify profitable ways dairy farmers and industry can reduce the negative impacts of hot weather, with a focus on animal nutrition and welfare.

Developing cost effective nutritional based strategies can mitigate the negative impacts of heat events and understanding the interaction between the Heat Tolerance Breeding Value and and nutrition may deliver benefits of approximately $160/cow/lactation to farmers.
