The impact of rain on leaching of trace minerals into the environment
A significant proportion of the global dairy and beef cattle population is lives on pasture. In the summer of 2021, almost every continent experienced widespread flooding. Heavy rainfall and excessive flooding occurred in Western Europe, China and parts of the USA. These bad weather conditions presented a huge challenge to dairy and beef farmers, particularly if their cattle were living on pasture. A recent report published in the Journal Science Advances suggests that most communities can expect that each degree of temperature rise will bring even more extreme wet conditions in the future.
