Managing livestock in today’s globally connected world requires precise data to optimize your operations and protect your investments. Livestock that burn too many calories trying to stay warm in extreme cold will lose weight instead of gain, and pregnant undernourished stock will give birth to less viable offspring. Cattle that experience hot days and warm nights can develop heat stress and stagnate or even die. Prevent losses by managing your feeding schedule to help keep your herds safe and healthy.
