During summer months when the mercury can rise to almost unbearable levels, the Iowa Cattlemens Association urges farmers to think of the safety of their livestock. ICA Communications Manager Trent Wellman says some reports of cattle deaths due to heat this year have been as high as 40-80 head in some parts of the state. Wellman says with market-ready cattle selling for a relatively low price in the tough economy, unexpected loss of livestock can make matters even worse. He urges anyone who has experienced loss of cattle due to adverse weather to call the ICA at 515-296-2266.
