Wildfire, via smoke and flames, can endanger the health and productivity of livestock. We are investigating the effects of wildfire—particularly smoke—on cattle. With a more thorough understanding of how wildfire smoke changes animal physiology, we can develop better strategies to alleviate that stress.
We invite you to explore this website to learn more about this hazard and our research and outreach projects. Check back for updated information. Feel free to contact project members with questions.
