Veterinary Viewpoints: Caring for calves in cold weather

When the weather becomes severe, calving becomes much more challenging. Although, both hot and cold weather can impact a calf’s ability to thermoregulate, calves born in extreme cold quickly utilize all body fat reserves, putting them at risk. Exposure to wind can exacerbate cold temperatures. Preparing in advance of inclement weather can lead to improved calf survival.

The evolution of today’s bucking bull athlete is no different.

Wild Turtles are Not Pet Material

Mon, Aug 12, 2019

From mid-July through September, thousands of people visit Oklahoma’s lakes, rivers and other waterways to cool off and enjoy their summer. And many of them encounter Oklahoma’s wildlife, as animals also utilize the water and adjacent wilderness. At this time of year, baby turtles are hatching out of eggs buried months earlier. Most egg nests were found and destroyed by raccoons, skunks and other predators. The lucky, undisturbed nests can see 30 to 40 turtles dig themselves out of the soil. They must remain hidden, however, and try to make it to the water and its aquatic vegetation quickly.
