AbstractFull Text

In east Germany, the number of heat days (>30°C) will be three to four times higher by the end of this century compared with 1961-1990. Such high temperatures are far above the temperature optimum for cattle and can cause depressions of health, fertility and performance. In a grazing experiment...
