The Kansas heat wave kills about 10,000 head of fat cattle as temperatures reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Kansas has been experiencing an unusual heatwave since last weekend, killing 10,000 fat cattle as recorded temperatures topped 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The peak of extreme heat reported by Monday, June 13, rose to 104 degrees with a humidity of 35%.

The death toll is expected to rise even more as the heat wave continues with no end in sight.

The recent heat wave is considered one of the worst natural disasters in Kansas. Livestock experts reportedly believe the event has caused significant damage to livestock as of Monday, with no specific amount of economic damage known at this time.

Animal deaths, as well as human deaths from heat stress, dehydration, and other risks related to a heat wave are common.

However, extreme temperatures in the United States in recent years have indicated an exacerbation of natural disasters due to climate change and global warming.

Livestock deaths in Kansas

Ulysses, Kansas, received the impact of a heat wave and high humidity during the mentioned period, beginning on Saturday, June 11.

There was palpable frustration during the disastrous event over the heavy losses in the state’s livestock farming, according to Corbit Wall, a livestock analyst with National Beef Wire, according to the DTN Progressive Farmer news site.

Wall appears to have received such information from two non-media sources.

The site also shared a statement from AJ Tarpoff, a veterinarian with the Kansas State University Extension.

Tarpov noted that deaths related to heat stress in cattle fattening pens apparently began in June each year.

In addition, the vet also explained that livestock can build up heat in their bodies which can lead to death; This happens when there is a “perfect storm” of heat and the absence of night cooling.
