Sweating Calves
« on: December 31, 2018, 11:01:59 PM »
I was at a show this weekend and overhead men talking about his calf sweating all over his body.  Can cattle sweat without the neck wraps, etc.  if so, what causes this.  It was about 30 degrees F.

Its not actually sweat; rather condensation gathering on a calfs warm body from a cooler, damp atmosphere. Mostly you see it with cattle in barns that are somewhat warmer than the cold outside temperature. Its one reason you see so many fans running in show barns when it seems cold enough already.
