Providing shade for your livestock is important to protect them from heat exhaustion during the Australian summer months. While cattle and other livestock have a remarkable ability to cope with environmental stress, the combination of high temperature and humidity, with high levels of solar radiation and minimal airflow, can lead to increased levels of stress and exceed the animals’ ability to dissipate body heat.

Excessive heat load in feedlot cattle or other livestock can lead to significant production losses, welfare issues, and even death. Providing shade is one strategy that is commonly used to reduce the impact of intense heat conditions on your livestock.

There are a number of different shade structure options and the best one for your feedlot or sale yard depends on your setup. The team at Polytex are here to help you through the whole process so feel free to give us a call or request a quote and we’ll be in touch.
