Abstract

The energy requirement of the body increases with onset of winter to produce more heat and to maintain the basal body temperature. Failure to maintain the basal body temperature in cold weather usually lead to cold stress to the animal. With the onset of stress, the health as well as overall productivity of cattle is affected. To maintain the productivity of livestock and decrease the stress, farmers have to adopt certain measures. This issue of cold stress can be catered in multiple ways, some of which include maintaining appropriate body temperature of animal by rendering lukewarm water for drinking, optimal concentration of hay for heat generation and allocation of warm jackets and blankets for livestock. Proper bedding is also needed to the animals so as to deal with the cold floor.
