Summer Benefits of Melatonin for Livestock Producers

Summer Benefits of Melatonin for Livestock Producers

During the summer heat, livestock producers face financial challenges with taking care of their animals.  A few researchers have recently studied the benefits of melatonin supplements in certain livestock animals. The research stated that, “ Melatonin has hypothermic and antioxidant effects and may counter the detrimental effect of heat stress on livestock production.”

The study also showed that melatonin supplements might be able to protect certain animals from heat stress which can cause other physical problems.  With the benefits of melatonin supplements livestock producers might be able to better protect their animals and prevent a loss in production for the year. 

Of course producers should speak to a livestock vet before starting their animals on any medication or supplement.
