Heat affects cattle breeding in Rio Grande do Sul

The excessive heat that has compromised the production of grain, milk and pastureland may also cause losses in European cattle breed reproduction. The high temperatures typically experienced between December and February cause discomfort to the animals and can lead to embryo death.

Experts say 20% of cows inseminated or covered in high temperatures may abort. According to the vet Antonio Cabistani, director of C.O.R.T. Genetics, in these cases, the incidence of degenerated embryos and non-fertilized eggs is high.
