(July 26, 2010)--Feedlots in Kansas are losing cattle by the hundreds to the heat and high humidity and the searing temperatures are creating extra problems for livestock owners across the state.
Owners are using extra water, and other methods to try and save cattle in the harsh summer climate.
Andrew Murphy of Innovative Livestock Services said keeping cattle hydrated and cool has been a trying task.
Innovative Livestock Services, representing feedlots in Nebraska and Kansas, has lost more than a thousand head of cattle to the heat wave.
