Climate Change May Cut Cows' Milk Production in South
US News & World Report ^ | July 12, 2012

Posted on 07/14/2012 7:40:59 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Rising temperatures caused by climate change may lead to reduced milk production among cows in the southern United States, a new study suggests.

University of Washington researchers analyzed climate and dairy industry data and concluded that the effects of climate change on milk production by Holstein cows through 2080 will vary across the United States due to major regional differences in humidity and swings between day and night temperatures.

The study concluded that "regions that are currently experiencing the greatest losses [in milk production] are also the most susceptible: They are projected to be impacted the most by climate change."

Study author Yoram Wanker summed up the findings this way: "Cows are happy in parts of Northern California and not in Florida."

The study was scheduled for presentation Thursday at the Conference on Climate Change at the University of Washington, in Seattle. The data and conclusions of research presented at meetings should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Michigan apples and cherries are a 90% loss this year (early bloom followed by cold) and peaches were a 95% loss.

On the other hand, I’ve heard that apples and cherries are doing great in the pacific northwest. Not sure how the southern peach crops are doing.

It makes good sense to grow diverse crops in as many places as possible.

Remember how “weather is not climate”...when it undermines “global warming”...but it is...when it supports it.

Funny how that works.

What hogwash!...or should I say cowwash!? It’s nothing but a continuation of the UN manipulation to gain control. At the bottom of the article it references WHO.

From the article:

“Using U.S. Department of Agriculture statistics, if you look at milk production in the Southeast versus the Northwest, it’s very different,” study co-author and postdoctoral researcher in the university’s Climate Impacts Group, Guillaume Mauger, said in the news release. “It’s reasonable to assume that some of that is due to the inhospitable environment for cows in the Southeast.”

The study was scheduled for presentation Thursday at the Conference on Climate Change at the University of Washington, in Seattle. The data and conclusions of research presented at meetings should be viewed as preliminary until published in a peer-reviewed journal.

Hell ... that's 68 years from now. When the cows are THAT old it's a wonder that they'll be able to produce any milk at all !

Except that global temperatures have been declining for 2000 years, when you don't use the fraudulent data the IPCC used.

This is what global cooling looks like

Like way back in the ‘time machine’ when ‘they’ invented Daily Savings Time.

An old farmer was being interviewed and ‘they’ were trying to sell it to him (DST) and were telling him of all the good things he could do with the extra hour of sunlight in the evening.

He stood there, scratched, then spit and said “When is someone going to teach the animals they are supposed to wait an hour before being ‘serviced’ every day? - and if you should happen to be able to do it, they will have to be retrained to go back to their old ways in 6 months or so”.

Someone needs to make a list of all the ‘threats’ and hysteria dems had dumped on the rest of us about ‘global warming’... Everything from it causes asthma to most major cities will be under water etc... Put up or shut up guys... we’re getting tired of scare tactics.. endless scare tactics... endless, endless endless.

Most of the Michigan cherries are tart cherries for baking. Canned pie filling prices will go up but we’ll survive.

I recently traveled the length of Kalifornia. I looked for the happy cows that escaped the Wisconsin winters and fled to California.

To my surprise, I found the California dairies to be cow prisons. The cows were penned in close confines with no grass and some had sun shelters, others did not. There were massive stacks of hay and long feeding troughs. The imprisoned cows can only eat, crap, and make milk. The happy cows on the ads are the equivalent of the Jews in Erinstalt and totally unrepresentative of the concentration camps.

Strangely believe it, there are similar such dairies in the Eastern Provence of Saudi Arabia that are undoubtedly copies of the California milk production technology. The heat there is always intense.

Me thinks the writers have not traveled enough to really grasp the effect of heat on milk production.

Poor cows. First the cows were blamed for belching as a cause of global climate, and now because the cows belched, the cows defeated their purpose for giving milk. Poor cows. Next thing you know some idiots will blame humans.

Through 2080!

FING HILLARIOUS!

Through 2080.

They can’t give me the correct weather report a week out, and they are modelling to 2080.

I don’t subscribe to the comedy channel, but this must playing on it.

Through 2080.

They can’t tell me it will rain 3 days out and they are modelling out to 2080. 68 years from now.

JUST F ING HILLARIOUS.

The AGW crowd has gone flat nuts and is now comically desperate. They will do ANYTHING to push AGW so as to implement UN Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 is an international plan to control the people of all nations. In the USA, Agenda 21 is a rural land grab to make rural land off limits, and force Americans into cities.

This first video by Michael Shaw explains United Nations Agenda 21 in detail:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrrvNPeIYLA&feature=plcp

This second video by Rosa Koire explains how your local government is currently installing Agenda 21:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CEHWsdimVO4

This video shows how hard it is to fight entrenched local politicians who are pushing for Agenda 21 and don’t know it or don’t care:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Su7i4cH7eYo&feature=relmfu

In 1968, the Club of Rome invented global environmental crisis as the fundamental boogeyman under which they could implement world governance under the umbrella of the New World Order.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWh5Y3vGTDQ

In America the goal is to move Americans into cities, where they can control our movements, associations, energy use and consumption.

Out in the middle of nowhere there is this dairy farm. Until today I had never heard of it. And they are producing world class Holsteins. I sure hope there is no serious glo-bull warming out there.

I've heaard this used to describe LOTS of things; but never have I seen exactly what it means!

It appears to mean something HIGH classed but when averaged over the 'world' I'd take it to mean mediocre!

Im just took my 3 yo, Ellie Mae, to the vet yesterday to find out why her udder is so huge. (I suspected mastitis.)

I do NOT milk her(or Gracie) and she is NOT pregnant.

The vet said it is due to estrogen in the grass she’s eating!

She should start to shrink soon.

I had one of my doe's develop mastitis and she was nursing and refused to let the kid nurse. The utter was red, inflammed and swollen....had a friend come out to take a look at her, she could not be milked out. (this is the nasty part but I trusted my friend) She asked me if I had a darning needle. She inserted the eye end of the needle into the teet. was able to get a clump of curdled milk out. The inflamation caused the milk to curdle (inflammation causes heat within the utter...The kid became a bottle baby...

I had to try to get milk out of her every couple of hours once the curdled milk got out of the teet...Don't know anything about is being caused by grass, more than likely a bacteria or such....I also penned her a couple times a day made her lay down and put warm towels on the total utter. Once she felt the warmth it must have given her some relief. When I came into the barn with the towels she was no problem penning and getting her to day down...

Without a kid, unless they are milk goats they shouldn't be producing milk....check to feed you give her for their ingredients. If she is producing milk and the utter is red and inflamed, you have to get the milk out, even if its only an ounce or two. It took several weeks for her to come around and the inflammation to go down. Mastitis is painful, I don't know the cause and I didn't take my doe to the vet, but I wonder, if she is inflammed why the vet didn't give you anti-biotics for her (poor girl, I feel sorry for her)

My girl ended up with what I called a *busted utter* she did kid the following season, 1/2 of her utter hung down and she could only produce milk for her kid on one side of the utter...the teets didn't work on the other side and she looked kind of funny with one half of her utter hanging down like a bucks scrotum...but it took a while for the whole thing to clear up.......the gal that helped me raised black angus and was probably as good as a vet in knowing her breed, but had utter problems with her cows when they calfed...

What kind of meds. did the vet give you. Is the vet you went to one that treats farm animals...my vet on the farm made house calls when something was wrong...(thats what I mean by being a farm vet). Hope things come out OK and try the warm towels if the utter is swollen, and red. Thats about all I can think of for now, keep me posted on her progress....3 years old is still a young goat

If it were my goat, I'd see if I could get some milk out of her...if you decide to use warm towels as a treatment. Not HOT, but quite warm...seems to help with the goats discomfort (pain)

Sorry I was on the road from Sacramento and back to southern Utah.

You must have forgotten that you are talking to the Gold Medal Winner in dairy judging FFA Competition at the 1957 Dairy Cattle Congress in Waterloo Iowa. I thought so.

Friesian Holsteins originated in northern Holland. When I was a kid all the bigshot dairy farmers went for that breed because of their milk production.

This one looks to be a descendant of Burkgov Inka deKol a famous and very productive sire from the Cache Valley Breeders in Logan Utah. He was the grand father of thousands of offspring. How do I know this? The distinctive shoulder spots found only on his offspring.
