The temperature at which cows start producing less milk varies across the country depending on other factors like humidity and overnight temperature swings. (UW News)

A new study by CoEnv scientists evaluates the heat stress variables that may lead to a drop in milk production for cows across the country. This work will be featured in the International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts and Responses, which will be held on campus this Thursday and Friday. Yoram Bauman, affiliate professor at Program on the Environment, and Guillaume Mauger and Eric Salathe’ of Climate Impacts Group, are co-authors, with Tamilee Nennich of Purdue University.
