Wednesday, February 20, 1980 , THE WORLD, Coos Bay, Ore.-Page 11 Stock market listings ; Cattle care studied Researchers say when the wind kicks up to 20 miles per hour, and the temperature dips IS degrees below rcro Fahrenheit, human flesh begins to freeze in about one minute. So Imagine the plight of a range cow in the blustery Eastern Oregon winter: It can freeze its tail off - literally. That is one reason, not to mention possible weight loss and even death, Oregon State University researchers are using a computer, weather date and some Yankee ingenuity to try and make cattle tbit more snug. A device being studied by researchers Ralph Phillips and Earl Bates Is a solid windscreen to protect cattle. They have found that solid barriers can cut wind velocity more effectively Qian the typical porous windscreens used in Eastern Oregon for purposes unrelated to cattle, such as to curb erosion, collect snow to add moisture to agricultural land and for other agricultural purposes. Phillips, an animal nutritionist at the Union branch of OSUa Eastern . Oregon Agriculture I Reserach Center, and Bates, an agricultural meteorologist based on the campus in Corvallis, said a prototype solid windscreen at the Union station near LaGrande, eight feet high, 80 feet long and made of inexpensive plywood, cuts the wind by as much as 90 percent in part of the protected area and by SO percent over a larger area. "Believe me, its not a problem getting cattle to use them when the chili factor gets down there," said Phillips, noting that last wirter the manure pattern behind the prototype matched a description of the protected area. "Im not sure you can show a big direct economic advantage when any type of windbreaks are provided for fast-growing cattle on a high level of feed intake," Phillips said. "But they may be beneficial to animals on maintenance diets." ' He said the most obvious, payoff for windscreens to supplement "natural breaks auen as ravines and brushy areas used by cattle would be saving newborn calves, which can die In few hours when the chill factor drops far below zero. Pregnant cows prefer to get off by themselves, he said, and be envisions a system of large barriers for herds and a few small, possible mobile, screens for cows giving birth. Phillips and Bates also are collecting and analyzing winter weather date with the goals of determining svtrage wind chill factors for various winter periods and developing a method of checking wind and temperature early in the morning and predicting and makkig available to cattlemen - the chiO factor for the rest of the (by. "A producer In this area could use that sort of information to know when he needed to provide shelter or even to shut calving times to try and avoid the periods that usually are worst, said Phillips. "We would like to be able to develop a chart a producer could use to look up chill factors and see what and how much he should feed his cattle," he added. According to the Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station researchers, scientists disagree on how much stress cold weather places on cattle. Some believe moderately low chill factors say zero to minus 30 degrees Fahrenheit can cause hard-to-recover weight losses. Others do not Phillips said chill factors in the minus 30 to 70 degree range can freeze a cows flesh (the tail, for example) and cause pneumonia and other diseases. The problem of cold stress has existed as long as weve been raising range cattle," said Bates. He said at todays cattle prices, saving one or two calves probably would pay for a solid windbreak such as the 30-foot-long barrio- at the Union experlcmtn station.
