Title: A Review- Heat Stress and Their Effect on Dairy Cows Nutrition


In our review includes factors in?uencing heat stress in lactating dairy cows and how it affects milk production. High feed intake results in raised metabolic heat increment. High metabolic heat increment requires effective thermoregulatory mechanisms to maintain body temperature in a thermoneutral zone and in physiological homeostasis. Heat stress is complicated because the responses to heat stress affect not only the energy balance, but also water, sodium, potassium and chlorine metabolism. Plasma progesterone levels can be increased or decreased depending on whether the heat stress is acute or chronic. Water, sodium, potassium and chlorine are important constituents of sweat, and sweating is a major, if not the most important, thermoregulatory mechanism used to dissipate excess body heat. strategies to reduce heat stress must be developed to enable cows to express their full genetic potential.
