Project Code:  LIVE.0228

Year of Published: 2007

The overall objective of this project was to update and validate the animal parameters in the ‘Hot stuff’ model released in 2001. The report found additional data sets were consistent with the original heat stress data applied in the HS software and recommended a slight change to the heat stress threshold, mortality limit and coat factor for Bos taurus dairy (Friesian) cattle.
