The National Weather Service has issued regional warnings for excessive heat throughout California, extending into next week. Highs could potentially reach up to 113 degrees for the coming six days. Particularly concerning for farmers is that overnight lows in many areas may remain in the mid to upper 70s, temperatures that don’t allow for night time thermal recovery of livestock. For more information on how to protect livestock and employees from this heat event, see CDQAP’s dairy heat advisory.
