Influence of Some Factors on the Relative Evaporation Rate from the Skin of Cattle
THE rate of evaporation from the skin plays an important part in the thermoregulatory adaptation mechanism of cattle in a high-temperature environment. In the present investigation a method for the determination of the relative evaporation-rates of the skin was examined and employed to determine the evaporation-rate for different regions of the body, its variability among cows, and the factors affecting this variability.
