New Southern Plains Podcast With Dr. A.J. Tarpoff, Extension Veterinarian at Kansas State University About the Massive Cattle Loss in Kansas Feedlots last Month In this episode of the podcast we talk to Dr. A.J. Tarpoff, Extension Veterinarian at Kansas State University about the weather conditions that caused the massive loss of cattle in Kansas feedlots last month and how cattle producers can better prepare for extreme weather events.

Host, Clay Pope asks Tarpoff what happened, and what caused this situation to come together, and an overview of what did happen a couple of weeks ago, "It was a really unique circumstance with a series of events leading up to that specific weekend and I think it's important to briefly touch on that cattle have an amazing ability to be able to adapt to a wide variety of environmental circumstances. That's one of the main reasons we have cattle in all 50 states, which is which is pretty amazing. And that really just proves their adaptability.

The events leading up to do the weekend a couple of weeks ago, had some changes that happened pretty quickly. We had a very mild spring, its been welcome, We've had wonderful weather, you know, cattle comfort was very high. But leading up to that weekend we had a sudden spike in in temperature. But temperature isn't the whole story when we're talking about heat stress or cold stress for that matter. It's temperature, humidity, wind speed and solar radiation."
