The App allows producers to calculate the heat stress index on their smart phone by inputting the temperature in C or F and the relative humidity, either at that moment or by inputting the forecast temperature and relative humidity for later in the day. The producer then gets an output that links them to various management options they can use to reduce the potential heat stress on their animals. Now producers have a tool that readily puts the information they need at their fingertips, anytime, anywhere!

Key Features:

  • 7 types of livestock
  • A variety of ventilation systems
  • 3 languages: English, French and Spanish
  • 5% increments for humidity changes
  • 2 degree increment temperature changes (metric/imperial)
  • Levels from No Heat Stress to Emergency
  • Practical actions to take to reduce the effects of heat stress
