Summer losses in milk production are usually related to the negative impact of summer heat stress on the lactating cow. Actually, this is true, due to the large negative effect of heat stress on feed consumption and the efficiency of feed utilization of the lactating cow, as well as on reproductive traits. Recently, it was found that also dry cows, although they are not producing milk, are negativ ...
