Extension Vet Says Keep Hogs And Sheep Cool During Extreme Heat

Extension Vet Says Keep Hogs And Sheep Cool During Extreme Heat

 

Producers need to pay special attention to their sheep and swine during the dog days of August with high humidity levels and temperatures in the mid to upper 90s.  SDSU Extension Veterinarian Dr. Russ Daly says animals in confinement need to be kept cool and given lots of water.

Daly says if a producer chooses to transport hogs or sheep to do it early in the day before the hottest conditions set in.

He says the worst heat stress clinical signs will show up in the early evening hours around 6 to 7pm so it’s important to move them early in the morning and keep them as cool as possible during the balance of the day.
