Extreme heat stresses cows and threatens the global milk supply

Heat and drought are putting a dangerous strain on dairy cows around the world, halting their milk production and threatening the world’s long-term supply of everything from butter to baby food.

Dairy volumes are forecast to fall by almost half a million tonnes this year in big exporter Australia as farmers pull out of the industry after years of pressure from heat waves. In India, small farmers are considering investing in refrigeration equipment, which they would have to work hard for. And producers in France were forced to halt production of one type of high-quality cheese when parched fields left grass-fed cows with nowhere to graze.
