As Australian summers get hotter and longer with more extreme weather events, what impact will this have on our livestock? Why is heat stress becoming more of an issue for Australian farmers? What strategies exist and are emerging to deal with the rising temperatures?
Farmers for Climate Action, together with Vets for Climate Action, explore the physiological and animal welfare issues associated with a changing climate. This webinar will focus largely on the impacts of temperature extremes on animals, as well as how to mitigate these impacts.
Speakers include Dr Kristy DiGiacomo, University of Melbourne, and Professor Peter Windsor, University of Sydney. The webinar will be hosted by FCA’s very own Ellen Litchfield, a trained vet and farmer based near Lake Eyre.
