  • Iowa Beef Center at ISU Heat, Drought and Goss’s Wilt Can Affect Corn Yields in Iowa

    Drought stress presents a much bigger potential problem than Goss’s Wilt for livestock producers...  “Nitrate concentration or cyanide concentration in drought-stressed corn can be a serious threat to livestock use,” Steve Ensley said (of Iowa State University’s (ISU) Veterinary Diagnostic and Production Animal Medicine department). “Nitrate is converted to nitrite in the rumen, and nitrite converts blood hemoglobin to methemoglobin, which cannot transport oxygen to body tissues. Cyanide concentration, also known as prussic acid poisoning, works in a similar manner. In both cases, animals often die because of lack of oxygen.”
