2016/17 Summer Season 

Welcome to the 2016-2017 Cattle Heat Load Toolbox operational forecast season. This season we will be issuing “Heat Load Outlooks” for the week ahead every Monday and Thursday morning. We have also updated our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section with sections about how to manage your subscription, weather station and using the HLI Threshold Calculator to set up your alerts. As always we are available for comments and suggestions throughout the season and are happy to help.
