How do cattle adapt to the heat?

Temperatures in Northern Australia soar in the summer (wet season), meaning people and animals alike have to adapt.

Two of the dominant cattle breeds in these parts are the Brahman and Droughtmaster.

Both of these breeds can withstand the humidity, largely due to their origins tracing back to the tropical regions of Asia.

Their genetics and the similar climates of destination countries, such as Indonesia and Vietnam, are the reasons the cattle can adapt so quickly to their destination feedlot after a voyage.
