The Cattle Heat Load Toolbox (CHLT), a free-to-use website, is an integral part of managing summer heat at Australian feedlots. Our toolbox is comprised of a dashboard with site-specific climate snapshot and weather forecast, a Risk Analysis Program (RAP), and a compilation of cattle behaviour information. CHLT is developed based on world class research undertaken by the University of Queensland and Katestone, and backed by Meat and Livestock Australia and the Australian Lot Feeders Association. The toolbox sets a world standard for the management of heat in lot fed animals.
CHLT was developed in 2002 and is now operated by Weather Intelligence, a Katestone Company. CHLT provides the resources to allow Australian feedlot managers to develop a heat management plan and proactively manage the risk of heat at their site. Register now for full access to all areas of the website. To register, a feedlot must be NFAS accredited.
