Thousands of Cattle Dead From Extreme Heat Wave in Kansas

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.7 | Relevance 4.8

Thousands of cattle dead this week as soaring heat and humidity hit across the state of northwest Kansas. Death numbers are still being reported, but some news sources estimate around 10,000 animals — and these deaths come as a particular hit to the industry after producers already reduced herds due to drought and feed costs. Continued high temperatures are a serious threat to more losses throughout the coming days.
