Poor weather detrimental to milk production

On calls in Kerry where cattle have been housed because of the extremely poor weather conditions. Heavy rain has left land with heavy soils being waterlogged. This leaves the farmers with no option but to bring cows back indoors. This is extremely detrimental to milk production and the stress associated with same to reproductive performance. Farmers visited are worried about heat detection and pregnancy rates to 1st service.
