After a cooler weekend, we are expecting to experience much higher temperatures later in the week. Humidity levels will be somewhat lower than last week, so nights should be a little cooler than we saw earlier, but still at the record-setting temperatures we are expecting (record for this time of year, not all-time), heat stress will be an issue for both people and livestock. Southeast Farm Press posted a story that describes how to identify heat stress in cattle for those of you who have livestock that you might find interesting.
