Cold weather cattle care

Caring for dairy and beef cattle in winter requires extra care. Cattle can handle the cold pretty well, so long as they have some type of windbreak available. If a cow has good winter hair, she does fine until temperatures drop below 20 to 30 degrees F. Below that, she compensates for heat loss by increasing energy intake; she must increase heat production to maintain body temperature.
