The present study aimed to evaluate evaporative heat transfer of dairy cows bred in a hot semi-arid environment. Cutaneous (ES) and respiratory (ER) evaporation were measured (810 observations) in 177 purebred and crossbred Holstein cows from five herds located in the equatorial semi-arid region, and one herd in the subtropical region of Brazil. Rectal temperature (TR), hair coat surface temperature (TS) and respiratory rate (FR) were also measured. Observations were made in the subtropical… CONTINUE READING
