Tips for Keeping Your Cows Cool
"One challenge of raising cattle is helping them regulate their body temperature, especially if you live in a hot climate. Understanding this is an important part of keeping your cows healthy."
Cows do sweat, but not enough to keep cool in warmer temperatures. While we sweat all over our bodies to keep ourselves cool, cows can only sweat a small percentage of what we can.
A cow can only sweat about 10 percent as much as humans can, which means they cannot regulate their body temperature easily.
Cows sweat what little they can to stay cool, but once they begin to feel too hot, they will seek out shady spots to cool off.
To keep your cows cool, always provide plenty of cool, fresh water for your cows. The water should not be exposed to direct sunlight during hot weather.
